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 Hall, Hutton-in-the-Forest

The Hall

The Hall is one of Hutton's principal rooms, remodelled by Sir Francis and Lady Diana Olivia Vane with Anthony Salvin in the 1830s. They retained the best of earlier features from the 17th Century, including the panelling and the Cupid Staircase. The impact of the room is enhanced by the portraits, the generous fireplace, the armour, the antlers and the painted coats of arms on the ceiling.
