Ogston Hall is an interesting example of the organic growth of the English country house, comprising four distinct architectural periods all unified within a Victorian envelope.

The current owners have refurnished the house with appropriate furniture and pictures, so that the interior looks much as it did in early 20th-century photographs.

Ogston Hall is open 1 – 28 August for guided tours with the owner.

Tours take place between 1-5pm and must be booked in advance.

Please phone for an appointment on 01332 344513 or 07796 130677.
