- Summer House
Summer house and garden pavilion, circa 1903-06. Perkins and Bulmer architects.
Rubble with Cotswold stone roof, lead gutter with embossed decoration. Cross-plan
and gabled in Cotswold manner; mullion windows. Coped verges with kneelers and
finials. South gable has loggia with chamfered antae and block caps over which is a
stepped panel; side entrances Tudor-arched. North and south fronts have Tudor
arched doorway and flanking 2-light hollow-chamfer mullion windows.
Interior rather like a billiard room: large fireplace recess with benching and

is well-wrought in the Art Nouveau tradition. Until recently used as a Roman
Catholic Chapel.
Important setting at the head of formal water garden of Shipton Court (qv).
