Crowcombe Court was purchased in 2011 by David and Kate Kenyon. David retired from the Army in 2001 and has since worked for the British Association for Shooting and Conservation and latterly as the Director for England and Wales for the British Deer Society. Kate followed a career in London, including four years as a Lady Clerk in the Royal Household, before returning to her family estate in the New Forest where she ran events including weddings, open air theatre, open air opera and a country fair. Together they bring a great deal of experience along with a sympathy for this historic house which will ensure that it is maintained for future generations to enjoy.
