Conservation and restoration of this Grade II listed house, bath house and gardens. The house, stands in a picturesque landscaped garden designed, in the 18th century, by the renowned landscape designer Humphrey Repton.

The grounds include horse chestnuts planted to mask or frame the mid-18th century stables, an octagonal cupola, shrubbery walk with Serpentine paths and the Cedar of Lebanon planted as a central feature of the lawn. By 1805 the gardens were sufficiently advanced to be illustrated in Peacock’s Polite Repository.

The project sets about restoring and conserving the many historical features and included detailed archaeological research and restoration to the Georgian Bath House, all supported by Heritage Lottery funding.
