Location: Shepton Mallet, Somerset

When Harry Dearden was a young boy he had the run of this 17th century estate with his two brother and sisters; climbing trees, racing up and down the front lawn, playing hide and seek in the rose gardens and enjoying regular dips in the freshwater pool. ‘It was a magical up bringing,’ says Harry. “Only five minutes away from Glastonbury our parents were fabulous hosts who prided themselves on being hospitable and welcoming. The house is full of memories of
parties with people dancing in every room”.
Built in 1600, Pennard House, set in rolling Somerset countryside, is the epitome of a quintessentially English country home, surrounded by gardens, wild meadows, woodlands and cider orchards. The central part of the home is Jacobean and comprises the heart of the house with the large central hall, welcoming country kitchen and central bedrooms. In 1815 the East and West Georgian wings were built and a number of grand reception rooms added including the drawing room, library, dining room, conservatory and several further spacious upstairs bedrooms. A stable building and coach house were also built along with a spring-fed freshwater lake, secluded rose garden and formal topiary lawn.
