Georgian grandeur on a human scale; neoclassical mansion by Henry Holland set in ‘Capability’ Brown’s final landscape and gardens
Standing proud and strong, this fine Georgian mansion sits within ‘Capability’ Brown’s final garden and landscape. Discover the rare curved walled garden for the first time as we reveal this unique Brownian design in June as part of our Berrington Garden Project. In the house, discover jewel-like interiors, designed by Henry Holland and home to the Harley, Rodney and Cawley families. Uncover the story of Ann Bangham, first lady of Berrington, and see her restored 18th century court mantua dress. Experience some of the extremes of the 18th century in the wig and bum shop (grown-ups & kids) and find 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, on select days, 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 Wade Collection. The house is surrounded by Capability Brown’s final landscape. Though it has a slightly austere exterior, the house has delicate interiors and a homely, welcoming feel.
