Chillington Hall is an enchanting 18th century house, it is a product of two differing Georgian styles.

The South side built in 1724 by Francis Smith of Warwick, has rooms of an intimate size contrasted with those built on a grander scale by Sir John Soane some sixty years later.

The Saloon, typical of Soane design, features a soaring ceiling topped by a great lantern with beautiful plasterwork.

The parkland, landscaped by ‘Capability’ Brown, incorporates the magnificent lake and its architectural follies.

Chillington Hall offers guided tours of this magnificent house and our knowledgeable guides will give you an in-depth history of this family home, its ancestors and contents.

The Hall is available for private hire for family celebrations, weddings, charity events and as a filming location. Although Chillington Hall is a grand house it retains an intimate charm which makes it an ideal setting for entertaining.

Private owner-led tours

Enjoy a tour of the house led by Charlie Giffard, who is the 30th member of his family to own the Estate and live at the family home. Charlie will give you a friendly and informative tour around his childhood home and cover subjects such as architecture, art, social and domestic stories and what it’s like to live a 21st century way of life in a house that was designed and built for a very different time.

The tour will finish with tea/coffee and scrumptious cakes served in our beautiful gardens on the sun terrace (weather permitting). You are welcome to take a walk in the gardens or to the lake to admire Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown’s landscaping at leisure afterwards.
