Description

PAINTING REF 110223

 

A rustic cottage in Kew GardensQueen Charlotte's Cottage is an early

example of a cottage orné, a rustic cottage built as a country retreat,

but not as a residence. The cottage was used by the royal family in the

late 18th century for resting and taking tea during walks in the gardens.

Its main attractions were its rural setting and the large paddock which

was situated to the rear of the cottage.Many exotic animals were kept

in the paddock. Queen Caroline had kept tigers at Richmond,

but George III and Queen Charlotte contented themselves

with more docile pets, including oriental cattle and colourful

Tartarian pheasants, which are still to be seen in this quiet area of the gardens.

From the early 1790s, kangaroos (the first to arrive in England)

were kept and successfully bred in the paddock.

By the early 19th century there were 18 kangaroos.

This made the cottage a popular destination for royal walks until 1806 when

Mr Aiton, the gardener, was instructed to turn the kangaroo

paddock into a flower garden.No doubt the Queen was inspired by

her gardener at Richmond, 'Capability' Brown, who introduced the

picturesque landscapes to English aristocrats.
