History - The Manor House at Node Park was built in circa 1815 as a private country residence for a wealthy Hertfordshire family. The property remained in private ownership from 1815 until 1947 and has had a number of distinguished owners including William Reid (1849-1867), a partner in the brewing firm of Watney, Combe & Reid and Charles Alexander Nall-Cain (1905-1926), the First Lord Brocket.
In 1947 it was operated as the headquarters for the Palestine Police for the Colonies. In 1949 until 1952 the house was converted to a hotel and restaurant. In 1952 Shell Mex and BP bought the property and operated it as a training centre until it was sold to Safeway in 1990 who in turn sold it to Chartridge Conference Company, who had used the property as a
conference and wedding venue until 2011.
