The original manor house was the home of Lord Eversley, Charles Shaw-Lefevre, the second longest serving speaker of the House of Commons. Upon Lord Eversley's death in 1888, the estate was occupied by Lieutenant Colonel Horace Walpole and his family.
In the 1980s, Heckfield Place was purchased by the Thales Group, who greatly expanded it as a commercial conference and training centre. Until 2002, it was run as Thales Commercial University. However, in that year, the estate was sold and is now run privately as a conference centre and wedding venue. The house is a Grade II listed building. The building underwent major refurbishment from 2011 and completed in March 2013.
