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, supported by internationally renowned artists Heather and Ivan Morison, the team at Berrington Hall begin the planning and showcasing of the Walled Garden and Pleasure Grounds Restoration Project.
In the parkland, you can explore Brown’s work with Red Earth’s ‘Genius Loci’ exhibition. In the house, discover jewel-like interiors, designed by Henry Holland and home to the Harley, Rodney and Cawley families. See the Rodney maritime story reimagined through the Arts Council award winning ceramic sculpture ‘War & Pieces’ by Bouke de Vries in the Dining Room. Explore some of the extremes of the 18th-century in the wig and bum shop and discover the hidden ‘below stairs’.
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 there are some pieces on display from the Charles Paget Wade collection. Though it has a slightly austere exterior, the house has delicate interiors and a homely, welcoming feel.
