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 first interior design 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 JC Bach, Chopin, Elgar and Bizet.
With over 400 acres of parkland, partly landscaped by Humphry Repton, we're one of the largest country estates surrounding Greater London. You can follow five way-marked walks, see a parterre garden designed by Gertrude Jekyll or enjoy the tranquillity of National Garden Scheme’s quiet garden.
Our house, gardens and parkland are now closed for the winter season. But we're still opening this December for some special Christmas events. You might even meet Father Christmas. For all the information on what's going on at Hatchlands this Christmas head to our events page.
Our list of 50 things to do before you’re 11 ¾ will set you on your way to outdoor adventures. You can complete 18 of the activities here. Build a den in our adventure area or play conkers under one of our huge horse chestnut trees. Just ask the team at reception for pointers when you arrive.
