A finely proportioned Grade 1 Queen Anne house built by Smith of Warwick in 1714, the house retains much of its original panelling and decorative features.
Acton Round Hall houses an unusual private collection and has a beautiful garden with follies. Mr and Mrs Kennedy give personal tours of the house. Mr Kennedy is also a scagliola artist, and gives demonstrations of this rare technique.
Prices for tours, lunch, tea/coffee and scagliola demonstrations please email firstname.lastname@example.org

The house was built as a dower house for the Acton family of Aldenham, but then never occupied for almost 200 years. It was used as an agricultural building. Pigs lived in what is now the hall, and grain was stored in the dining room during World War 2.
