Choristers' House, Studley Park
Choristers' House, Studley Park
The Choristers' House is located just east of St Mary's Church in the 400 acre deer park on the Fountains Abbey Estate and is let as a holiday cottage by the National Trust. It has five bedrooms and sleeps 10 people. The house was designed by William Burges for George Frederick Samuel Robinson, the first Marquis of Ripon, and built in 1873. Burgess originally referred to it as 'Choristers' House' with later names including 'Church Lodge', 'Sacriston's House' and 'The Cottage'. Its first name 'Choristers' House' is probably indicative that the Marquis's original intention that, as well as housing the organist and music master, it was to house either a music school or a choir.
