Ever wondered what lies beyond the ‘Private’ signs? Discover the surprising story of Attingham’s hidden home - a two-storey apartment in the Mansion.

These private apartments were once used by Teresa, 8th Lady Berwick (1890-1972) and more recently were home to the late Mr Edwin D. Cohen, a retired stockbroker and collector.
