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 Library lies directly behind the late 17th Century classical facade and has a fine view towards the Pennines and Cross Fell. It was re-designed by Anthony Salvin in the latter half of the 19th Century, including a new ceiling, oak doors and bookcases. The recent gilding is by Caroline Gibbs.
