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.

Lady Darlington's Room

This room is named after Caroline Vane, the second Countess of Darlington, who was a cousin and a regular visitor to Hutton. It is an interesting example of an 18th Century room which was redecorated during the Arts and Crafts period. It has dark green paintwork and one of the four remaining William Morris wallpapers in the house. It contains a collection of metalwork from the Keswick School of Industrial Art.
