Our History

It is not known exactly when Lucknam began, but the –ham ending to its name, ‘Luckenham’ suggests that it was a Saxon settlement dating from before the Norman invasion in 1066.

From as far back as 1199 to 1688 there was a farmhouse on the current site of the main house.  For over 5 centuries the land was farmed until 1688 when the last of that family died leaving all the estate to nine cousins who decided to sell. Lucknam Park was bought in 1987 by a joint venture trading as Lucknam Park Hotels Limited. In 1994 the hotel was bought by a European shipping family who operate Lucknam Park as a single private hotel property.
