Betchworth House
Betchworth House
The grade II* listed Betchworth House dates partly from the late 17th century (the brick faced section in the centre of this photo, with the cupola) and partly from the early 19th century (the partly seen block on the left). It was originally built for the Freeman family, a member of which, Sir Ralph Freeman, had purchased the estate in 1634. The estate was later acquired in 1816 by the Right Honourable Henry Goulburn, and has remained in the family ever since, with the present owner, Lord Hamilton of Dalzell, being a direct descendant of Henry. The gardens were designed by Humphrey Repton, the late 18th century garden designer, and are considered to be an excellent example of his work.

Recent tree felling alongside the River Mole has opened up this view from Betchworth Bridge.
