A brief history

Bonnington Cottage was the principal seat of the Boys family, until 1666 when it passed to the Brome family then later to the Goodnestone Park estate in 1710. 

The cottage has had various purposes since its construction. Initially a granary, it became the farmhouse of the Goodnestone estate in the 1700s. Subsequently, the former Lord FitzWalter used it as his estate office before converting it into a home to be used by the family. It was also a favourite of the famous novelist Jane Austen.
