Home to the Proby family since 1660, Elton Hall is an enchanting house that has evolved throughout the centuries culminating in a fascinating amalgamation of styles.  Each room is packed with treasures – porcelain, magnificent furniture and fine paintings from mid-15th century Old Masters to remarkable 19th century works. The Library is one of the largest in private ownership and possesses wonderful treasures such as Henry VIII’s prayer book.

 

Formal gardens, first laid out in the 1730s, have been lovingly restored by the present owners over the past 40 years.  Now acknowledged as an RHS Partnership Garden, they include mature topiary, a Gothic Orangery, a flower garden with herbaceous borders, sunken garden, shrub garden and box walk.

 

The Mulberry Café at our on-site garden centre, Bosworth’s, offers lunches, morning coffee and afternoon tea within the Estate’s old walled garden.   Many of the plants grown in the gardens are stocked in the plant area

 

 

AN EXTRAORDINARY, ROMANTIC, PART-GOTHIC HISTORIC HOUSE NEAR PETERBOROUGH IN CAMBRIDGESHIRE, THAT HAS BEEN IN THE PROBY FAMILY FOR 400 YEARS

Elton Hall is nestled in the beautiful countryside on the Cambridgeshire/Northamptonshire border, lying eight miles southwest of Peterborough. It stands proud in unspoilt landscaped parkland where a house has stood since the 12th century.

The house has been the home of the Proby family since 1660, although previous generations held land at Elton from the time of Elizabeth I. Elton Hall is enchanting and there is something romantic and magical about the building with its gothic south elevation set at a right angle to the classical, French inspired, entrance wing. Successive generations have embellished both the house and collection, which contains many Old Masters and fine examples of English portraiture.   A visit, which also includes the recently restored gardens, provides the visitor with a fascinating insight into British history and taste.

Sir William and Lady Proby and their four daughters Alexandra, Alice, Rose & Isabella, continue to maintain and preserve their home and welcome visitors to the Hall. There is something for everyone to see, from the State Coach used by the family to attend the Diamond Jubilee celebrations of Queen Victoria, to Henry VIII’s Prayer Book, given to him by Katherine Parr who had herself, been given the Manor of Elton by Henry VIII after their marriage.
