Hinton Ampner
Hinton Ampner house is an elegant country manor which dates back to 1793 (an earlier Tudor house stood close to the current site). The house was completely transformed in 1865 and again to its current look, in the thirties, but then burnt down in a catastrophic fire in 1960. The house was then lovingly rebuilt by the last owner, Ralph Dutton.

The beautifully proportioned rooms house an exquisite collection of ceramics and art. Each window offers an undisturbed view of the tranquil countryside beyond.

The garden was also created by Ralph Dutton. It was started in 1930, making this a modern 20th-century garden.The property is now more noted for its garden than the house.
