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 East Front
The East Front built in the time of Sir George Fletcher 2nd Bart.
Light, classical, almost rococo; this renaissance facade is a tour de force. The light coloured stonework and the delicate classical features contrast dramatically with the rest of the building. It was built by Edward Addison, almost certainly to the design of William Talman, architect of Lowther Castle where Addison was clerk of works.
