...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.
