Berrington Hall

Built in 1778-81 for Thomas Harley, 3rd Earl of Oxford, Berrington Hall is one of the few masterpieces of the architect Henry Holland to survive intact. The Hall is in fact a villa with a grand Ionic portico. The interiors are characteristic of Holland’s refined Louis XVI manner, many containing mythological references to the marriage of Harley’s daughter Anne to George, the eldest son of Admiral Rodney, one of the most distinguished naval commanders of the day. The impressive staircase with bronze balustrading in the staircase hall is a Piranesian succession of sweeping arches beneath a great faceted dome. The hall is set amidst a park with an artificial 14-acre lake laid out in 1780 by the landscape designer ‘Capability Brown’, who was also Holland’s partner and father-in-law.

Accredited Museum

Berrington Hall, Herefordshire (Accredited Museum)

This collection has 2,261 items online

The collection at Berrington Hall is generally not indigenous, the house having come to the National Trust relatively unfurnished due to the 7th Lord Rodney’s fondness for gambling away the family wealth and much of Berrington’s contents – including several Gainsborough paintings – in the 19th century. Today the house is widely furnished and decorated with The Elmar Digby Collection bequeathed to the Trust in 1981, which features fine examples of French furniture, snuff and sewing boxes, seals, clocks and watches, and small objets d'art and de virtue. The ceramic collection at Berrington is considerable, ranging from a blue and white Chinese plate and carved oriental stand both from c.1700, to a set of Copland bedroom china in a white ground and gold moulded rope design c.1885. The painting collection is small but holds Allan Ramsay’s portrait of Jean Jacques Rousseau, and four large sea battle scenes from the War of American Independence . A number of drawings and watercolours are also on display, including a caricature of Winston Churchill as a pirate, as are numerous prints, many after Angelica Kauffman featuring historical, mythological and allegorical figures. There are also four tapestries from the Aubusson workshop based on paintings by the French artist Nicolas Lancret, and commissioned c.1901.
