The original palace was given to Edward II in 1305 by the Bishop of Durham and used as a royal residence from the 14th to the 16th century. In 1933, Stephen Courtauld and his wife Virginia acquired the lease of the palace site and restored the Great Hall while building an elaborate home, internally in the Art Deco style. The dramatic Entrance Hall was created by the Swedish designer Rolf Engströmer. The Courtaulds also substantially modified and improved the grounds and gardens.
