Thedden Grange is a privately owned country house and estate in the civil parish of Bentworth, on the outskirts of Alton, Hampshire, England. Since renovation in the mid-1970s the original house, outbuildings and land have been divided into seven separate properties plus additional flats.

The house and grounds have been used as locations in a number of films and television programmes.[1]

History[edit]

Thedden has a long history going back to at least the 15th century, when it’s recorded that William Estone paid rent for lands at the manor.[2] In the 19th century Thedden Grange was owned by industrialist John Wood.[3] During the Second World War the house was used as a prisoner of war camp (number 294).[4]
