Sir John Dashwood was an English landowner and was the third son of Sir John Dashwood-King, 4th Baronet. He inherited the baronetcy from his brother, the 5th Baronet in 1862, but died, unmarried and without issue, the following year.

West Wycombe Park is a country estate built between 1740 and 1800 near West Wycombe in Buckinghamshire. It was built on the orders of Sir Francis Dashwood, 2nd Baronet as a pleasure palace for him and his family and friends.

At Cunningham White's we source decorative antiques and furniture. We are guided by great decorative value, recognising the emotion that can be gained from owning something that just looks and feels so good. We don't pin ourselves down to one particular style or period. We simply love good looking things.

Sam finds and Naomi fixes (although sometimes it's the other way round) and as a team we manage to always have a quality selection of stock in our collection.

We believe that antiques are the future. Timeless, quality pieces add so much character to any scheme and can make a house into a home. They are sustainable. They haven't been thrown away because they are made to last and they can be fixed. We do that bit for you (if it's needed). Antiques reflect our individuality and connect us to past generations. We will always try and find out the provenance of a piece and share that with our customers.

We gladly welcome visitors but please let us know when you plan to visit as we're often out. Our workshop is based in the grounds of a working rescue farm in the characterful, vibrant and independently minded community of Totnes in beautiful South Devon.
