The mansion at Copped Hall was completed in 1758 as a gentleman's country house. It was, and is, set in excellent landscape and was well known for the quality of its construction.

The house was burned out in 1917 (not as War damage).The house was subsequently allowed to fall into disrepair and suffered much vandalism. It was saved from very unsympathetic development in a 9-year campaign by the by the Friends of Copped Hall, who, as the Copped Hall Trust, were able to purchase it in 1995. Work began on the gardens immediately and on the mansion in 2000.

All the floors and roof structures are now restored and the house is being used for Study Days and Concerts. Work continues on the interior.

The site has a recorded history going back to the 12th Century. Mary Tudor was a prisoner here for two years in the Tudor House, which is currently the subject of an archaeological investigation. It is believed that 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' was played in that house for the first time.

The current unfinished state of the house offers a wonderful opportunity to see restoration at first hand.

Copped Hall Mansion and Gardens also has a Garden:

Having seen Copped Hall from the M25 when it was a derelict shell I really wanted to see it after noticing the restoration from the motorway. The website was easy to find and we decided to take a closer look on one of the open days. The house is beautiful even though restoration is ongoing, the tour guide was knowledgeable, and the gardens a complete joy at this time of year. It's well worth a visit if you like old houses and gardens at only £8 per person, they also have an open garden once a month which we will be making a return visit to. The gardens are huge, complete with a walled garden and hothouses, also being restored. The whole site is a credit to the hard work of the volunteers, I only wish I had had longer to linger! But I will definitely be making a return visit

Copped hall open day was advertised locally . I wasn't sure if it would be boring, I was really surprised . Many people have heard stories of copped hall in need of massive renovation , sadly special places such as theses are left to deteriorate. So what is so special, firstly when you attend it is very old school, the lovely lady at the gate greets you and wishes you a good day, the volunteers know each other and are more like a family all joined with the common purpose of saving copped hall for the future.you can buy plants grown and propagated here at a reduced cost. The building has huge proportions and the historical facts un ravelled the guided tour.schools are attending to show the younger generation how great and important this place is. The really good bits, acres and acres of land and gardens being developed by enthusiasts, the kitchen garden is amazing I was blown away by the level of dedication shown by individuals and the pride of the supporters by the achievements. The gate houses are privately owned as well as some other outbuildings that have been renovated to sell in order to raise more funds, an amazing backdrop to the skyline copped hall is a Phoenix raising being rebuilt for others to enjoy and treasure, truly an amazing place.i have . Joined as a supporter which means I can go back and am entitled to free entry,every penny will make a difference I'm bringing my family next time in order to share the amazing view, and story of copped hall well worth a visit , bring packed lunch and revel in the history on our doorstep.
