Arbury Hall

CV10 7PT

Arbury Hall has been the seat of the Newdegate family for over 400 years and is the ancestral home of Vicount and Viscountess Daventry.

This Tudor/Elizabethan House was Gothicised by Sir Roger Newdigate in the 18th Century and is regarded as the "Gothic Gem" of the Midlands. The Hall contains a fine collection of both Oriental and Chelsea porcelain, portraits by Lely, Reynolds, Devis and Romney and furniture by Chippendale and Hepplewhite. The principal rooms, with their soaring fan vaulted ceilings and plunging pendants and filigree tracery, stand as a most breathtaking and complete example of early Gothic Revival architecture.

The Hall stands in the middle of beautiful Parkland with landscaped gardens, rolling lawns, lakes and winding wooded walks. Spring flowers are profuse and in June the rhododendrons, azaleas and giant wisteria provide a beautiful environment for the visitor.

George Eliot, the novelist, was born on the Estate, and Arbury Hall and Sir Roger Newdegate were immortalised in her book "Scenes of Clerical Life".
