Welcome to the Castle Ashby Estate, ancestral home to the Compton Family since 1512. The Castle, still lived in to this day by Lord Compton, son of the 7th Marquess, is very much at the heart of this 10,500 acre Estate. The Estate has a rich history of royal visits, world famous architects and landscape designers and military occupation alongside everyday family life in a rural community. The Castle Ashby Estate continues to move forward into the future with new initiatives designed to ensure that the Estate continues to prosper for centuries to come.
