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

Hatchlands Park was built in the 1750s for naval hero Admiral Edward Boscawen and his wife Fanny. They gave architect, Robert Adam, one of his first interior design commissions. His work can be seen throughout the house, particularly in ceilings and fireplaces.

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.

Situated on the edge of the beautiful Surrey Hills and surrounded by charming villages, this peaceful location is just 45 minutes from central London. With over 400 acres of parkland, partly landscaped by Humphry Repton, we're one of the largest country estates in the area.

You can follow five way-marked walks, see a parterre garden designed by Gertrude Jekyll, enjoy the tranquillity of the National Garden Scheme’s quiet garden, or bring the family to experience our natural adventure area for children.

What's on

Visit us for glowing autumn colour with The Great British Walk, drop in for spooky Hallowe'en arts & crafts or discover what we've got going on this Christmas. Get more details of everything that's happening this autumn including pony rides and archery on selected dates.

Autumn colour

Visit Hatchlands to add a little extra colour to your autumn. Our woodland and parkland is full of hornbeam, oaks and beech that are changing colour, as well as horse chestnuts bursting with conkers. In the garden and around the house look out for canadian maples, liquidambar and fireberry hawthorn.

Candlelight opening

Our cellar comes complete with built in eighteenth century wine racks

For the next few Thursdays - on October 9, 16 and 23 - see our four main showrooms augmented by over 100 candles. You'll be able to view the rooms looking very differently to how they're usually presented. If you want to get a better look at something, just ask one of our volunteers and they'll be happy to help you.

Conservation work

This autumn we're carrying out repairs and redecorations to our house. If you visit us you might see scaffolding along the west front of the house or in the courtyard. Feel free to ask us if you have any questions about the work we’re doing to safeguard the future of Hatchlands.

Bring the family

There’s loads for families to do at Hatchlands. Start with a visit to our fantastic natural adventure area – with hand-crafted willow tunnels, domes and balance beams. You can also pick up a house trail, download a garden trail, get competitive with garden games or take a pony ride with pony magic.
