About Dewsall Court was originally built in 1644 by Richard Pearle, who lived there with his family for over 100 years. The country house was also the birthplace of the first Duke of Chandos, who was a major patron of the arts but lost all his money and went bankrupt due to his indulgent life. The venue was then owned by Guys Hospital for over 300 years and as a result a painting from the house now hangs in the boardroom of the hospital in London. It is also believed that many important paintings from The National Gallery were stored here for protection during World War Two.
