Description

Peplow Hall is an exquisitely beautiful country house, dating from 1725 and set in magnificent gardens and grounds. The main house exudes elegance with its beautiful light panelled reception rooms and bedrooms together with the practical comforts of modern day living, with its large well presented kitchen and adjacent family sitting room.

It is clear that over the years a great deal of thought has gone into creating the fabulous gardens at Peplow, with a great eye for colour, shape and strategic planting to ensure that there is colour throughout the year. The gardens extend to about ten acres with wonderful Azaleas,Rhododendrons, Roses, herbaceous borders and its own fully enclosed walled garden, running down to the seven acre lake.

The current Peplow Hall was built in 1725 by Hugh Pigot, replacing an old manor house on the site. The estate was subsequently sold to the Clegg family, but unfortunate financial difficulties led them to sell again to a wealthy potteries industrialist called Francis Stanier, and it was Francis Stanier who greatly enlarged the Hall in 1877, along with building the adjacent Epiphany Chapel (not owned). In the 1930s the Hall was substantially reduced in size to its current form.

It should be noted that in the original sale particulars we had offered lot 1 with an enlarged area of land extending to 102 acres including Garden House and Orchard Croft. The additional 29.5 acres (Lot 2F) and Orchard Croft and Garden House (Lot 2B) could still be available separately. Further details available on request. Please refer to the lotting plan.
