The gorgeous hall rests in around 7½ acres of private grounds, characterised by manicured lawns, majestic woodland and charming topiary. Accompanying the hall are several luxury holiday cottages, an outdoor swimming pool and impressive equestrian facilities.
Erected in the mid-19 century, the hall has housed several notable figures throughout its 150 year legacy. The estate was originally owned by the Duke of Devonshire. Later it was developed by a Thomas Dixon Esq, who subsequently employed the famous writer, artist and landscaper William Sawrey Gilpin to lay out the wonderfully elegant ornamental gardens.
Currently operating as a successful lifestyle and business venture, this estate caters to weddings and luxurious holiday escapes. The proven track record of success, coupled with established bookings, presents a rare opportunity for immediate and ongoing income.
