Situated just 2 miles outside central Bromley on the A21 at Bromley Common in Kent, Oakley House is a characteristic manor house set in its own beautiful gardens.

Oakley House is a building steeped in history - during the 19th century, ownership of the house passed through the hands of several men, including Captain (and afterwards Admiral) Sir William Cornwallis.

Admiral of the Red Sir William Cornwallis, GCB (10 February 1744 – 5 July 1819) was a Royal Navy officer. He was the brother of Charles Cornwallis, the 1st Marquess Cornwallis, British commander at the siege of Yorktown. Cornwallis took part in a number of decisive battles including the Siege of Louisbourg in 1758, when he was 14, and the Battle of the Saintes but is best known as a friend of Lord Nelson and as the commander-in-chief of the Channel Fleet during the Napoleonic Wars.

His affectionate contemporary nickname from 'the ranks' was Billy Blue, and a sea shanty was written during his period of service, reflecting the admiration his men had for him.
