The mansion was built for the Earl of Suffolk and Berkshire in the early 17th century, and the family continue to own and farm the surrounding estates.

In 1975 the property was converted into 19 apartments.

It also boasts two private grass airstrips and began to host the annual WOMAD Charlton Park music festival in 2007.
