    Of interest at  Blackdown House has been the subject of various al terations since its origin, including the ballroom (now bil liard room) in 1820. In 1840, on the instructions of Captai n James Henry, who had just acquired the property after 20 0 years of Yaldwyn occupancy, the notable architect Salvin , responsible for much of the House of Lords, was commissio ned to draw up alterations, including the large drawing roo m and main dining room. In 1891 the Estate was bought by S ir Frederick Philipson-Stowe who added a west wing and est ablished the spectacularly mature rhododendron, azalea an d camellia garden that one sees today.
    In 1941 the house was sold as part of the Blackdown House E state which at that time extended to some 1,591 acres and i ncluded Blackdown Home Farm and several other farms and hou ses. The property greatly diminished in size in the followi ng 60 years and was acquired by the present owners in 1996 . Extensive restoration has been carried out to the house t o include the roof, chimneys, rewiring, re-plumbing and wor k to some of the stone mullioned windows. In addition a gre at deal of internal refurbishment and modernisation has bee n carried out.
    Apart from the early connection with Cromwell, Blackdown Ho use appears to have been visited by a number of other notab le people. It is understood that Edward VII stayed at the h ouse and on several occasions Cecil Rhodes and George Berna rd Shaw visited the house being friends of Sir Frederick P hillipson-Stowe . Lord Tennyson was also a friend and regul ar visitor before building his own house a mile or so away
