Hatch House is home to Sir Henry and Lady Rumbold
(Frances), who have lived here together since 1977. They married the following year! Sir Henry succeeded to the family baronetcy five years later, following his father’s death. Hatch is a family home; Sir Henry came here when he was six, with his three sisters, and their collective childhood memory of life at Hatch is vast and picturesque. Lady Rumbold has always regarded the Dutch Garden as “the best room in the House” and she and Sir Henry dreamed of using it as a theatre.
For years the dream lay dormant, until Matt Brady came, cast his eye upon it, and was immediately moved to ask if he could produce a ballet evening here. Matt has now been doing this for 5 years: it was the beginning of events at Hatch. The Rumbolds now greatly enjoy sharing their spectacular house & garden for weddings and other events.
