Athelhampton House dates back to Tudor times; it was built by Sir William Martyn. The Great Hall is an exceptional example of early Tudor architecture with heraldic glass, linenfold panelling and carved roof timbers. The house remained in the Martyn family for four generations.
In 1957 Robert Victor Cooke purchased the house and in 1966 he gave Athelhampton to his son Robert Cooke MP. Today Sir Robert’s son Patrick and his wife Andrea run the house and continue to improve and renovate the house and gardens.
