Historic Hall And Fine Architecture
The first Maytham Hall was built in 1721 when Captain James Monypenny first acquired the land from the original owners, the Colepeper family, whose name adorns natural products on sale today. The present Great Maytham Hall was built in 1909, incorporating part of the old Hall. Sir Edwin Lutyens was commissioned to design the new Hall and his designs for the house and gardens complement each other. Although the founding of the Arts and Crafts movement is widely attributed to John Ruskin and its development to interior designer William Morris, Sir Edwin Lutyens is often considered the most influential architect of the movement in Britain.
