Calm and creature comforts in this 17th-century sandstone cottage.

Just beyond the arched entrance in the high sandstone walls of the Melmerby Hall Estate you’ll find Grade II listed Stag Cottage, tucked up against the Hall

Stag Cottage has been converted with craft and care from one of Melmerby Hall’s former working spaces into a bright and welcoming holiday retreat. Inside, you’ll find charming oak beams, a historic inglenook fireplace, and a spacious open plan reception and breakfasting kitchen. Outside, there are gated and sandstone walled private front and rear gardens with a fire pit and Weber charcoal BBQ for relaxed gatherings.

Stag Cottage is connected to Melmerby Hall via a secret lockable door leading to the Butler’s Pantry and both properties can be rented together as a glorious twelve-bedroom house to accommodate larger groups.


Rates range from £43 per person per night based on full occupancy of the 3 bedrooms for a 3 night mid-week stay in the early spring season.
