Further reference is noted in the Domesday Book, when it was owned by Chertsey Abbey until King Edward III bought it, turning it into a hunting lodge. It remained in royal hands until Charles I sold it to Arthur Squibb in about 1630. Around a century later, Solomon Dayrolle bought it and rebuilt it as the Georgian-style mansion we know today. Extensive harmonious restoration took place in about 1998. The grandeur of the original house has been sensitively homogenised with modern features providing unique accommodation.
Thomas Sheriff Place makes up the west wing of Henley Park and is a distinctively elegant property and retains a wealth of original features, notably the splendid high ceilings with ornate cornicing and large sash windows, allowing for a profusion of natural light through-out. The triple aspect drawing room provides comfort and splendour and is thought to have once been the ballroom to the manor house. Five full length sash windows
and doors to the terrace frame the far reaching countryside views.
The imposing staircase is stately in style and leads to the first floor which accommodates the guest bedroom with en-suite bathroom and a luxurious principal bedroom suite. Three further double bedrooms are situated on the second floor, all with spectacular views.
