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 Dining Room, Hutton-in-the-Forest

The Dining Room

This splendid early 19th Century room in the neo-Gothic style is at the base of the South East Tower. It was designed by Anthony Salvin and provides a fine setting for the grand Vane portraits. The whole aura of the room reflects the grandeur, the formality and the self-confidence of the age - imposing pictures, a magnificent grey marble fireplace, a large set of 18th Century dining room chairs and a Gillow table. The ruby cherries of the Bruce-Talbert curtains are picked out in the recently commissioned chandelier.
