Hutton-in-the-Forest consist of Medieval Pele towers, extended in 17th-century with a gallery and baroque central facade. In the 18th-century a suite of 3 rooms was added, and in the 19th-century a tower by Salvin.

The interiors span the centuries and contain a fine collection of portraits, English furniture, tapestries and china. 

The site features an 18th-century Walled Garden with herbaceous plants, terraces, topiary, dovecote and woodland walk through specimen trees.
