Melmerby Hall is a Grade II listed mansion in the heart of the Eden Valley located close to the Lake District and set within its own extensive walled gardens surrounded by 20 acres of private woodland with walks down to a small tributary to the River Eden. The earliest mention of Melmerby Hall dates back to the 1300s with the Hall extended and added onto a number of times over the last 700 years with notable additions including the Georgian Wing on the main front elevation, the Victorian ballroom on the archery lawn garden (removed in the 1940s) and a more recently added breakfasting kitchen. Melmerby Hall has been within the Rowley Estates for four generations and the recent renovations retain the character of this traditional country house including the oak panelled library, the dining room with an enormous stone fireplace, the Georgian drawing room with an open fire and the billiards room with a full size snooker table whilst accommodating modern use with newly refurbished ensuite facilities and breakfasting kitchen. Eight of the nine bedrooms are ensuite and the ninth twin bedroom has access to a private shower room & wc up the hall. If Melmerby Hall is already reserved, please consider our other halls, Blencowe Hall and Hause Hall Farm which also offer extensive accommodation and may well be available.
