Sandycombe Lodge was built by 1813 to the designs of England’s great landscape painter, J.M.W. Turner; working here as his own architect to create a quiet retreat for himself, away from the pressures of the London art world. It also provided a home for his father, old William, in retirement from his trade as a barber and wigmaker in Covent Garden. With old William’s declining health and changes in his own life, Turner sold the house in 1826.

Turner’s House Trust is a registered charity 1111653 and is registered with Companies House. The Trust became the owners of Sandycombe Lodge in December 2010 and responsible for the management of this historic property.

Turner’s House Trust is an independent registered charity which relies on visitors admission, grants and donations to remain open at all.
