The Stone Hall
The way into Hutton is through the Stone Hall at the base of the Pele Tower, the oldest part of the building, which was turned into the main entrance in the late 19th century. This barrel-vaulted, dungeon-like room is typical of the period. It has immensely thick walls and contains a display of weaponry.
Lady Darlington’s Room
This room is named after Caroline Vane, the second Countess of Darlington, who was a cousin and a regular visitor to Hutton. It is an interesting example of an 18th Century room which was redecorated during the Arts and Crafts period. It has dark green paintwork and William Morris wallpaper. It contains a collection of metalwork from the Keswick School of Industrial Art.
William Morris Wallpapers
There are still four early William Morris wallpapers in the house. Several more were painted over after the war when they fell out of fashion. The examples found at Hutton are some of the best.
