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 Stone Hall, Hutton-in-the-Forest

The Stone Hall

The way into Hutton is the impressive Stone Hall at the base of the Pele Tower, the oldest part of the building, which was turned into the main entrance in the late 19th century. This barrel-vaulted, dungeon-like room is typical of the period. It has immensely thick walls and contains an impressive display of weaponry.
