Built in the 18th century, numerous occupants have changed the face of this Italian-style house and it has an intriguing story to tell.
Built in the 18th century, numerous occupants have changed the face of this Italian-style house.
From a wealthy teenager who built this mansion, its occupation by the RAF in WWII, to the re-invention as a country house gallery. In 2018, see ‘Making her mark: celebrating creative women’, a new display in partnership with The National Portrait Gallery showcasing diverse portraits of influential women whp have made an outstanding contribution to art and culture. In the garden, traditional formal mixed borders contrast with sweeping lawns, and the restored working walled garden. Wander amongst 300,000 bulbs in the new ha-ha walk and new for 2018, sit under the pergola – an exciting new development from the long term vision by garden designer Andy Sturgeon.
