A delightful “cottage orné” built in the early 1800s by Richard Butler, 1st Earl of Glengall to a design by the famous Regency architect John Nash. The cottage was inspired by nature, and its unusual and rustic features include a distinctive thatched roof while it’s external woodwork resembles branched trees.
The nature theme is continued throughout the former guest cottage’s internal furnishings – containing a graceful spiral staircase and some elegantly decorated rooms.
The wallpaper in the Salon manufactured by the Dufour factory is one of the first commercially produced Parisian wallpapers. Situated on an elevated site with access by stone steps.
