Lynford Hall

Lynford Hall was built in the 1860s for Mr Lyne Stephens, a merchant banker, replacing an earlier building that had been the country seat of the Sutton family. Mr Stephens made his fortune by inventing dollsí eyes which opened and closed. The hall was designed by William Burn. After changing hands several times, the estate was eventually purchased by the Forestry Commission in 1930; the hall was then used by Sir James Calder as a grace and favour residence who regularly entertained Joseph Kennedy and his son John F Kennedy here. After the Second World War the fortunes of the building declined, being used at first as an officer convalescent hospital and then as a forestry training college. In more recent times its splendour has been restored as the Lynford Hall Hotel.
