Blencowe Hall holiday home details

A multi award-winning exceptional Grade I listed, fortified manor dating back to the 1400s that has undergone extensive renovation, bringing the two embattled Peele towers back into use for the first time in more than 300 years. Blencowe Hall sits on a bluff above the small river Petteril and is encompassed by its own gardens, grounds and fields incorporating access to the river. It has views to the nearby Lakeland fells and across the rolling Eden Valley fields.

Blencowe Hall won an English Heritage Construction Conservation Award which was accorded to the 20 most outstanding projects undertaken with their supervision in 2008, an Eden District Design Award, the NWDA Conservation Award and the RICS National Conservation Award. It is 5 Star Gold Award rated by Visit England.

We have just celebrated our 50th Wedding Anniversary at Blencowe Hall with 3 generations of our family present. It was truly amazing and memorable weekend. The children had a wonderful time playing outside in the grounds. The hall is very well equipped. Our family all loved Blencowe Hall and did not want to go home. For us, special memories are to be treasured and our stay at Blencowe Hall will be with us for ever.
