What to See

The Great Chamber

Originally one of the principal reception rooms for the Elizabethan family, the Great Chamber was remodelled to become Alicia Pearson’s bedroom.

The Great Bed was a wedding present to the Pearsons from the 1st Viscountess Cowdray. The needlework on its canopy, headboard, backcloth and bedspread dates from 1585 and was probably commissioned by Marie de Medici, sister-in-law to Mary Queen of Scots. Its curtains, pelmets and valances were worked in flame stitch embroidery in about 1620.

The portraits around the bed depict various members of the Dering family from whom Lady Emma is directly descended.
