From the owner

5* rated by Visit England and Gold Award winner, 4 bedrooms & 3 bathroom luxury accommodation near the Lake District for up to 8 guests. Certified as 'Families Welcome' and 'Pets Welcome' by Visit England.

The recent renovation brings this Grade II listed traditional Cumbrian long house back into habitation for the first time since 1764 and retains its original features including old ship timber oak beams, oak mullion windows, flagged stone floors, open fires and stone staircases.

Though Hall Farm is no longer a working farm, its position on one of the higher hills in the Eden Valley gives it amazing views towards the Pennines and the rolling countryside that has seen this area in Cumbria declared one of the UK’s designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Glassonby Hall has a galleried dining room with massive stone fireplace, a sitting room with woodburning cast iron stove and a large breakfasting kitchen with four oven Aga. It has a ground floor double bedroom with 5′ king size bed with a private shower room, a four poster Master Bedroom suite, a twin bedroom and a third double bedroom with a 5′ bed. Glassonby Hall is dog friendly and there is plenty of room for them to run around in the enclosed rear garden and excellent nearby walks.

If Glassonby Old Hall is already reserved, please look at our sister halls, Kirkbride Hall and Cazenovia Hall which offer very similar accommodation and may well be available.

The Daleraven Bedroom - 6' double bed (can convert to 2 single beds) - ensuite

Hi Thanks for your great review. It's fabulous to hear that you had such a successful stay. We have billiards tables in all of our halls (some convert from the dining table) and we find that these are a great hit with our guests. I'm glad that the fuse issue was sorted quickly, old houses do sometimes have issues and we try to deal with them as quickly as possible. Best Regards Charles, Christine and Jilly
