Isel House and Park

Isel House is a distinctive stone homestead first built in 1849. Isel is the legacy of the Marsden family, an affluent family who were farmers, botanists, environmentalists, and philanthropists.
Peel back layers of history inside the house with exhibits and collections that celebrate the house and its families (the Marsden’s and the Nicholls).

Climb the beautifully crafted timber staircase, wander alongside panelled walls and see the stunning stained-glass skylight.

Discover collections of fine ceramic treasures, 17th to 19th century European furniture, and reproductions of significant paintings.

There are two special rooms for children, ‘The Tiny Room,’ and the ‘Dollhouses of Elaine Baumfield’ which makes this a great place for families to explore.

Relax with a cuppa and a bite to eat at the Garden Window Café before taking a stroll through glorious Isel parkland and gardens.

Please note the house does not have rooms for hire, however for weddings, events and park bookings please book here:
