The detail

This historic Grade I listed fortified manor house sits on a bluff boasting incredible views of the Lakeland Fells. Blencowe Hall has a rich history dating back to medieval times. A bold vision by the owners and award-winning restoration work has transformed this rare twin-towered dwelling into a stunning and unique place to stay.

From the moment you approach the building you will be wowed by its grandeur. One of the two towers of the manor still sports the battle scars of an attack that is believed to have taken place during the English Civil War. This dramatic mark of history has not been repaired, instead highlighted by the renovations with glazing and balconies for two of the luxurious bedrooms in the property. There are a further ten sensational bedrooms to choose from, split across three floors. All the rooms have been stylishly decorated in a traditional, yet contemporary style, with all the period features being lovingly retained. There are eleven bathrooms, mainly en-suite.

With a selection of beautifully presented communal rooms, including a games room with a snooker table, this outstanding property is perfect for a gathering. For those special family celebrations or getting together with friends, grocery deliveries or catering can be organised. Alternatively the huge kitchen is superbly equipped for those in your party who love to cook, and there is a fabulous dining room where you can enjoy your meals with great views from the French windows.

With such sumptuous interiors, log burning stoves and comfortable couches it could be tempting to do nothing but relax. However, there are stunning formal gardens and local walks to enjoy. The village of Greystoke is only a mile away with a traditional Cumberland food available at the local pub, the Boot and Shoe.

If you are feeling adventurous there are also plenty of options for activities in the area. These include mountain biking, quad biking, paintballing and clay pigeon shooting within the grounds of Blencowe Hall. The estate is only a short drive from Ullswater. Here you can relax and enjoy the lake from the comfort of an Ullswater Steamer, take a leisurely stroll around the National Trust Aira Force waterfalls, or challenge yourself with one of the Lakes best loved and most breath-taking walks- Helvellyn.
