Sir Francis Page bought Middle Aston House in 1714. He was an infamous ‘hanging’ judge, and local legend has it that the widows of the 100 men he sentenced to death pursued him in the guise of owls. His fearsome reputation is referred to in Alexander Pope’s ‘Dunciad’ and Henry Fielding’s ‘Tom Jones’. Page had no children, so to keep the family name alive, he insisted that his nephew, Francis Bourne became Francis Page when he inherited the manor.
The Sir Francis Page Room is our largest, and you’ll find it on the first floor of the main house. Beautifully light and airy, it has superb views across the Oxfordshire countryside and can hold up to 50 delegates theatre style, or 30 boardroom style. All our rooms have LCDs and screens, flip charts and wi-fi connection.
