Flintham Hall (listed grade I) in its present form is as remodelled by T C Hine for T B T Hildyard in 1853/7 in an Italianate style, encasing earlier buildings on three sides and built of brick, partly rendered, and ashlar with hipped and gabled roofs.
The Hall is on the site of an older medieval and Jacobean house which was rebuilt in 1798, and faced in 1853/7 in Ancaster stone. The much admired 40 foot high conservatory in stone and glass is said to be the finest of its kind in the country. The Hall was described in the preface by Antony Beevor to Myles Hildyard’s “ It is Bliss here” as “Perhaps the most gloriously romantic Victorian house in England”.
There are public footpaths through the park which give good view of the Hall.
The library is almost exclusively furnished with pieces and fittings from the Great Exhibition.
