Home of Lord Faringdon and his family, who continue to care for the property as well as the family art collection, the Faringdon Collection, which is displayed in the house. Consequently, despite the grandeur of their scale, both the house and grounds remain intimate and idiosyncratic and very much a family home. They also continue to change and develop - nothing is preserved in aspic here! Outside a new water feature, Faux Fall, by David Harber. Inside, contemporary glassware by Colin Reid and Sally Fawkes. Note: administered on behalf of the National Trust by Lord Faringdon
