Kiplin Hall

This interesting Jacobean house was built for George Calvert, Secretary of State to James I and founder of Maryland, USA.

Since it was built in 1619, the house has belonged to four fascinating families, connected by blood or marriage. Former owners had royal connections including King John, James I, and Charles I and II.

Throughout the centuries alterations and additions have been made to the house and gardens, including a large extension that housed a Gothic drawing room, designed in 1818 by the noted architect, P.F. Robinson. This room was altered later in the century to designs by W.E. Nesfield, to create a library with rooms above.

The house is packed with the furniture, portraits, paintings, objects and personalia of the families who lived here. Visitors are welcomed into a home that they could imagine has only just been vacated by its Victorian owners!
