About Us

Papplewick Hall was built by Frederick Montague between 1781-86, on his retirement from public life in London.  He demolished a much older house on the site, formerly occupied by his parents, inherited by him in his twenties - the stable and cellar of which survive to this day.

Frederick Montague was a bachelor, and built Papplewick Hall for himself.  This explains its relatively modest size, and the compact number of rooms.  Although its architect is not known precisely, it incorporates many popular design features of the day - a cantilevered staircase, a fine drawing room ceiling in the 'Adam' style, and classical proportions throughout.
