Newhouse
Newhouse
A Jacobean manor house on the border of Wiltshire and Hampshire. Newhouse was built in 1609 by Sir Edward Gorge on a very unusual Y plan, meant to symbolize the Christian Trinity. It is thought to be one of only two such 'trinity houses' in the country. Newhouse was at first used as a hunting lodge, but was later adapted as the family home.
To this original Y shape were later added two Georgian wings. The house has been the home of the Eyre family and their descendents since 1633. It is now primarily used as a venue for weddings and other group gatherings. The house is set in 1300 acres of park and woodland. Within the house are a set of attractive period rooms, many panelled in dark oak, and displays of period furniture and artwork.

Sir Edward Gorge also built nearby Longford Castle to a similar triangular plan.
