Private visit to Southside House

Southside House is one of the most magical, intriguing and eccentric of houses. Behind its late seventeenth-century facade the interiors, which date from the mid-eighteenth century, are crowded with an extraordinary and splendid collection of paintings and historical objects acquired by the Pennington family over three centuries. In the early twentieth century it was home to Axel Munthe, the charismatic Swedish doctor and philanthropist who married Hilda Pennington-Mellor in 1907.
