After several years of being used as a storeroom, we have been able to move the items being stored elsewhere and re-open the room to our visitors.

It is a charming little room, with a lovely view of the walled garden across the moat and the countryside beyond. It has been furnished with those items which would have been there in Lady Chatterton's day.

Lady Georgiana Chatterton lived at Baddesley during the 19th century, one of a group of four friends who all lived together here, known as “the Quartet”.

She was a prolific author, writing novels and poetry, letters and diaries, and even translations from ancient Greek. You can see a few of her works on display in the room. She was also a fine artist and painted the triptych hanging by the altar in the chapel.

The other artist in the Quartet was Rebecca Ferrers, whose paintings can be seen throughout the house – including the portraits in the bedroom.

You can find out more about the Quartet, and all the other people who have lived at Baddesley over the centuries on our history page.
