Retford Park Tour
Retford Park NT Property Tour
Wednesday 26th September, 2018

Reiby Silo This beautifully appointed home, garden, farm and ancillary buildings is now registered under the care of the National Trust.

The house was built in 1887 by Samuel Hordern (1849-1909) merchant and stockbreeder, and his wife Jane née Booth. Retford Park house was designed by Albert Bond and is a grand rendered brick Italianate style residence.
It was in 1964 that James Fairfax bought the property and gradually turned it from an agricultural property to a gentleman's residence. The house is a treasure trove of pieces James Fairfax collected over the years. Both the house and garden are a delight to wander through. A surprise at every corner.
