The history

The legendary author, Thomas Hardy is believed to have been responsible for the architecture of Lorton House, having been employed at that time by the firm Hicks & Co who built it and his aptitude for the Gothic style is prevalent at Lorton.   This Victorian country house is steeped in British history just waiting to be discovered.

Susan's Feedback

“We all had the most wonderful Christmas at your lovely home. Our age range was from 20 months to 96, and each one had a great time. The children played carols on the piano after Christmas dinner and it was the best place for hide & seek. We have never stayed anywhere that was so well stocked with pots, pans & everything you needed.”
