...to the Jacobean country seat of the founder of Maryland, George Calvert. A ‘Gothic’ wing was added in the 1820s and redesigned in 1887 by W.E. Nesfield.
This intriguing house is now furnished as a comfortable Victorian home with 17 rooms open to the public. The Hall is crowded with an eclectic mix of previous owners’ furniture, paintings, portraits and personalia, including many Arts and Crafts items. Among numerous original paintings from the 16th – 19th centuries are works by Beuckelaer, Carlevarijs, Kauffman and Watts.
Ornamental gardens, a productive Walled Garden, Woodland and Lakeside Walks and an award-winning Tea Room add to the enjoyment of your visit.
We look forward to welcoming you.
The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) has awarded a grant of £53,100 to Kiplin Hall to conduct an archaeological survey within what remains of its once extensive estate. In the late 19th century, this covered over 5,000 acres, but land sales in the early 20th century reduced its size to 150 acres.
The project, Charting Chipeling, The Archaeology of the Kiplin Estate, is programmed to commence immediately, with the major part of the work being completed by autumn 2014. An exhibition, based on the work and results of the survey, is planned for the 2015 season.
Part of an important collaborative venture by the Yorkshire Country House Partnership. The project and exhibition, Duty Calls, Kiplin Hall in Times of War, is now on, and continues through this season and throughout 2014, commemorating the centenary of the start of the First World War in August 1914.
