A little about its history ...

The house began its long and colourful history in the early 1800’s and in 1832 it was used as a boys’ academy. It became known as Edenfield Academy but was later demolished in 1893 and a new house was built on the site but set back to face Town Field. The house was rebuilt by W.S Arnold a local building contractor. Arnold took up residence in 1893 with his wife and his young son Edwin. They had 3 domestic staff to help manage the beautiful home Arnold had created.

Following this the house became a maternity hospital where the famous actress Diana Rigg was born on 20th July 1938.

In recent decades Rutland House saw several more changes; including becoming a residential home and then finally it went on to become Hill House School until relatively recently when the school was closed and Rutland House was left empty. The recent owners saw real potential in this beautiful house and have meticulously restored the building to its former glory. Rutland House has now opened its doors for business people to enjoy holding any type of event or seminar in any one of its many stunningly restored rooms.

We look forward to welcoming you to Rutland House - whatever the reason for your visit we know you will enjoy the house as much as we have enjoyed creating such a unique and beautiful venue.
