Hatchlands Park was built in the 1750s for Admiral Edward Boscawen and his wife Fanny. They gave architect, Robert Adam, one of his first interior design commissions. His work can be seen throughout the house, particularly in ceilings and fireplaces.

Today the mansion is a family home, containing tenant Alec Cobbe’s collection of paintings and fine furniture. Also on display is the Cobbe Collection, Europe’s largest collection of keyboard instruments associated with famous composers including JC Bach, Chopin, Elgar and Bizet. The house also contains Mahler's personal piano.

With over 400 acres of parkland, partly landscaped by Humphry Repton, we're one of the largest country estates surrounding Greater London. You can follow five way-marked walks, see a parterre garden designed by Gertrude Jekyll, enjoy the tranquillity of the National Garden Scheme’s quiet garden, or bring the family to experience our natural adventure area for children.
