An exceptional Grade 1 listed fortified manor that has undergone extensive renovation bringing the two embattled peel towers back into use for the first time in more than 300 years. The discovery of Roman ruins, gold coins dating back to the reign of James I, numerous other artefacts and, reputedly, the oldest indoor toilets in Cumbria point to the historical interest of this property. Blencowe Hall sits on a bluff above the small river Peterill and is encompassed by its own fields incorporating access to the river across the road from Blencowe Hall. It has views to the nearby Lakeland fells and is a short walk from the small hamlet of Blencowe. It is just over a mile from Greystoke with its excellent pub ‘The Boot and Shoe’ and about the same distance from The Clickham Inn Pub just outside Blencowe.
Additional Information: Blencowe Hall is available as self-catering holiday accommodation for larger groups of up to 24 guests. Set within its private grounds are its former coach and carriage house, Riverain which has been restored to a three bedroom cottage, Cazenovia Hall which has four bedrooms and Wythburn Cottage which has three bedrooms. Each cottage has private gated gardens, parking and all are ensuite with log burning fires and are available for holiday rental individually or in combination for larger groups.
