Because our house functions as a family home, some of our objects are stored away or out on loan to other places.
For rarely viewed items from behind the scenes take a look at the national inventory of collections.
At Hatchlands we're working in partnership with Grace and Flavour, a not-for-profit co-op of residents in the local villages of East and West Horsley.
We’re delighted that in 2011, the Brown family became proud plot holders of our 1,000th allotment.
Cleaning the collections
Every year Hatchlands Park closes for the winter, but it's just the beginning of a busy season of cleaning and conservation for our house team.
Highs and lows of caring for Hatchlands
It’s not just our furniture and objects that need careful care and attention during the winter, the rooms themselves need looking after too.
Controlling our indoor environment
We work hard to maintain a stable, pest free environment ensuring the safety of the house and our collections.
Natural adventure area
To help encourage children to enjoy the outdoors we've created a natural adventure area, Wizard Wix’s Willow Warren.
A new decorative scheme was needed to revive our dining room, undertaken by specialist painter Zoe Mathieson.
With 400 acres of gardens and parkland to care for there's lots of essential work that goes on behind the scenes throughout the year.
Find out what we do and how it helps ensure a bright future for the garden and park.
