Berrington Hall, beautifully situated above a wide valley with sweeping views across the Brecon Beacons, was built between 1778–1783 for Thomas Harley (whose fortune derived from clothing the British Army) by Henry Holland and set in a parkland designed by Capability Brown. Home to the Cawley family since the beginning of the twentieth century, it was transferred to the National Trust after the death of Sir Robert Hugh Cawley, 2nd Baron Cawley, in almost pristine condition, in 1957. The painted ceilings, by Biaggio Rebecca, throughout the ground floor rooms are of great merit and the Staircase Hall, inspired by Piranesi’s dramatic engravings of imaginary Roman interiors, is dramatic, but there are few notable paintings except three naval battle scenes acquired from Lord Rodney, a descendant of the Admiral Rodney, when the house was sold in 1900/1901.
