Fenton House, London

4.4
Fenton House is a 17th-century merchant's house in Hampstead in North London which belongs to the National Trust, bequeathed to them in 1952 by Lady Binning, its last owner and resident. It is a detached house with a walled garden, which is large by London standards, and features roses, an orchard and a working kitchen garden. The interior houses the Benton Fletcher collection of early keyboard instruments, some of which are often played for visitors during operational hours, and collections of paintings (including the collection of Peter Barkworth, and loans of Sir William Nicholson paintings), porcelain, 17th-century needlework pictures and Georgian furniture. It also has fine portraits of Dorothea Jordan, William IV, George IV, Frederick FitzClarence and Adolphus Fitzclarence - one of Jordan's daughters by William IV lived in the house.

  • A visit to a beautiful house contains a lot of porcelain, musical instruments, paintings and drawings. A true journey back in time. Not to be missed without any circumstances the garden which is a haven of peace to be enjoyed without restraint. Flowers and plants (even exotic) galore (you can buy them). An orchard and a garden of aromatic plants complete this place where it is good to stop and rest. A must-see during a trip to Hampstead.

  • What a gorgeous hidden gem! Hampstead Village itself is charming and attractive. Walk up Holly Mount and you'll discover this historic oasis with beautifully landscaped walled gardens. The house is charming yet the gardens are its crowning glory. Well worth the visit!
  • Peaceful, pretty, quiet find. Beautiful gardens. Interior features needed more helpful information. Only had details of artwork, no details of the furniture or house and family history
