ABBERLEY HALLSet in 90 acres of stunning Worcestershire countryside Abberley Hall is now a Preparatory School and situated just twenty minutes from the M5.
Abberley Hall is a splendid Victorian country house in the Graeco-Italianate style. The ground floor interior contains a complete scheme of Victorian classical decoration, which is now a rare survival and comparable with Osborne House on the Isle of Wight. In 1845 Abberley Hall was redesigned by Samuel Whitfield Daukes and includes fine plaster cornices ceilings, scagliola columns in the Hall and a stone cantilevered staircase with brass balustrade. In 1885 the tall gothic Clock Tower was built, the portico and billiard room wing added and redecorated and refurbished the interior using the firm of James Lamb of Manchester. Lamb also designed the chimney pieces in the Hall, Boudoir, Drawing and Dining Rooms and the Library, as well as the bookcases in the Library and the cabinets in the Drawing Room.
