Full description

Eshton Hall can be dated back to the mid 17th century, and for the most part has remained in the same family up to the early1900's. The current building was completed around 1826 for Matthew Wilson, who was then the Deputy Lieutenant of West Riding and his step daughter, Frances, who was exceptionally wealthy in her own right, built up one of Europe's leading book collections and it was this that came to the attention of Charlotte Bronte, who is reputed to have visited Frances at the hall on many occasions. It is also suggested in the history of the hall that Queen Mary once stayed at Eshton Hall on her way north to Scotland, although this is more hearsay than proven. The Grand Reception Hall features a magnificent central staircase set below an atrium, and with ornate ceilings and plaster work.

Having been converted 10 years ago by Burley Developments in conjunction with English Heritage and Yorkshire Dales National Park, Eshton Hall was built in 1825 and is steeped in history, The Library, an exceptional apartment, taking its name from what was one of the principal rooms of the Hall. Set in delightful formal gardens of 2.7 acres and with the most impressive views of the North Yorkshire landscape. Retaining superb features from that time to include original oak (now antique of course) bookcases, sixteen feet high ceilings and ornate plasterwork, which have been blended with modern and stylish fixtures and fittings to give a contemporary feel.

Beautifully dressed, some of the furniture is available by separate negotiation
