Today Hutton-in-the-Forest reflects centuries of history and change. A house of six periods between the mid 14th and the mid 19th centuries, Hutton is a rich illustration of the development of the country house in the North of England.

A tour through the many rooms at Hutton is a remarkable journey in time. From the medieval Stone Hall to the high Victorian Drawing Room and the splendid Hall, the rooms are rich in history and notable for their contents. Every room has fine examples of furniture of its period and there is also an interesting collection of contemporary ceramics.

The Blue Room, Hutton-in-the-Forest

The Blue Room

The Blue Room, a bedroom, contains fine 18th Century furniture, an elegant four poster bed and washstand by Gillow, and watercolours by Lady Diana Beauclerk, whose granddaughter Diana Olivia married Sir Francis Fletcher Vane in 1823. The Victorian chintz bed hangings and curtains are particularly pretty.
