Kentchurch Court, near Pontrilas, Herefordshire, has been the home of the Scudamores for nearly a thousand years. Ralph Scudamore, the first recorded member of the family, built a castle here in 1052. Many changes have been made since then, with John Nash carrying out a thorough ‘modernisation’ in 1795. Throughout this time, the family has remained in residence. Mrs Lucas-Scudamore is very much in control of arrangements today. The extensive estate and gardens provide a beautiful setting.
