Glassonby Old Hall

Glassonby, Penrith, Cumbria, Country village

Glassonby Old Hall is a Grade II listed, 5 Star Gold Award winning traditional long house. It is one of three luxury retreats in Glassonby, Cumbria, the other two being Elk Cottage and Jenny's Croft which adjoin Glassonby Old Hall. All three properties date back to the 1600's. The recent renovation brings these Cumbrian retreats back into habitation for the first time since 1764. Glassonby Old Hall retains many of its original features including old ship timber oak beams, oak mullion windows, flagged stone floors, open fires and stone staircases.

Though Old 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 Old Hall is in an ideal location for an outdoor break in Cumbria, with numerous walks nearby leading to Lacey's Caves along the Eden River, to the Long Meg Stone Circle (the second largest in England) and to the charming nearby Cumbrian village of Melmerby, where the nationally acclaimed organic Village Bakery and the Shepherd's Inn Pub provide good food and local ales.
