Melmerby Hall

5* and Gold award winning country mansion with large gardens accommodating 18 holiday guests. 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.  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 in the conservatory.

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 whilst accommodating modern use with newly refurbished ensuite facilities.

This large holiday house is within walking distance from The Old Village Bakery (which serves breakfasts, lunches, coffees, homemade bread, cakes and snacks) and has a lovely ladies fashion, interior and gift shop upstairs called Hollberrie which is definitely worth a visit to support local independent retailing!. There is also a welcoming village shop and tea room, the recently renovated village pub called ‘The Shepherds Inn’ and a super antique shop (the Brocante Emporium) within walking distance.  The shallow tributary of the River Eden running through its 20 acres of wooded grounds provides hours of fun for kids.  Melmerby Hall is dog friendly and there is plenty of room in the grounds for them to run around!
