Hatchlands Park

3-copyHatchlands Park

Georgian mansion filled with historic keyboard instruments set in stunning Repton parkland

Hatchlands Park was built in the 1750s for Admiral Edward Boscawen and his wife Fanny. They gave architect, Robert Adam, one of his earliest commissions. His work can be seen in interiors throughout the house.

 

Today the mansion is a family home, containing tenant Alec Cobbe’s collection of paintings and fine furniture. Also on display is the Cobbe Collection, Europe’s largest collection of keyboard instruments associated with famous composers including Bach, Chopin and Elgar.

 

With over 400 acres of parkland, partly landscaped by Humphrey Repton and providing six waymarked walks, we’re one of the largest country estates surrounding Greater London. You can also see a formal garden designed by Gertrude Jekyll.
