Created as the ‘perfect house in the perfect setting’
Standing proud and strong, this fine Georgian mansion sits within ‘Capability’ Brown’s final garden and landscape.
This year, the team at Berrington Hall are continuing to develop work on the Walled Garden and Pleasure Grounds Restoration Project. For this we have developed a programme that focuses on the gardens and invites our visitors to enjoy them in a number of different ways, from live music to trails for families.
We have acres of parkland to explore and enjoy. In the house, discover jewel-like interiors, designed by Henry Holland and home to the Harley, Rodney and Cawley families. Or you could explore some of the extreme fashions of the eighteenth-century in the wig and bum shop and discover the hidden ‘below stairs’.
In the gardens you can discover ‘LOOK! LOOK! LOOK!’ by internationally renowned artists, Heather and Ivan Morison. Inspired by Berrington’s Georgian origins and eighteenth-century culture, this 8-metre-tall by 8-metre-wide pink structure inhabits the walled garden; highlighting the importance of this piece of ‘living history’ as the final masterpiece of Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown.
Created as the perfect house in the perfect setting, Berrington Hall has many secrets for visitors to uncover. In this, one of Henry Holland’s first houses, you can also explore the family rooms and see how the servants moved around the house unseen by the family and guests.
The interiors include Biaggio Rebecca ceilings, fine period furniture and Georgian architecture. Though it has a slightly austere exterior, the house has delicate interiors and a homely, welcoming feel.
In May we will also be launching a new installation by local artist Lorna Brown, ‘Eye am She’. This installation will be a reflection of Berrington’s past and the story of Ann Bangham, wife to Thomas Harley. Through her work Lorna will be revealing the hidden feminine aspects threaded throughout the mansion and how they are intertwined and integral to the masculine successes at Berrington. This will be an entirely fresh perspective on Berrington’s past and the women that lived here.
