Steeped in an abundance of history, Clarghyll Hall dates back over 500 years. Having passed through many eras it has evolved to now offer a unique property, with beautiful features that have been captured and retained over the years. Located on the fringe of Alston in the North Pennines, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Alston market town offers a wealth of amenities and also good transport links to Penrith, Carlisle and the M6.

Clarghyll Hall has been sympathetically renovated and updated by the current owners, with accommodation over a substantial five floors. The lower ground floor houses store rooms and boiler rooms. Located on the ground floor is the great hall, perfect for entertaining. The main formal dining room has a superb Oriel window and a large stone fireplace, ideal for those family gatherings.

The second floor has a further two double bedrooms and a large bathroom, with the third and final floor also having two double bedrooms, a bathroom and two box rooms.

The former Estate Manager's House has permission granted to create a separate four bedroom property. Work has been completed to a point, which ensures planning is granted in perpetuity. The current plans consent to the creation of a modern style property, allowing full advantage of the countryside views. Plans available upon request.

Clarghyll Hall has private and mature walled gardens, with woodland and a productive kitchen garden . A stone terrace with a wonderful ornamental pond and stone dovecote is immediately to the front of the hall, with lawns and a terrace to the rear, to take in the superb evening views.
