The fine Palladian style house was commissioned by Sir Thomas Clifton in 1752 to replace a previous house on the site, the seat of the Clifton family.
The house survives with little alteration today and is regarded as one of the best works of the eminent architect, John Carr of York. He spent ten years completing the design, which incorporated some of the earlier 16th-century house, the remains of which are still visible in the Courtyard and West Wing.
Please come along for a tour of the Georgian Hall.
Our newly refurbished West Wing has the facilities to cater for a event in a formal or informal style with food and beverages available. There are facilities available to meet all your function’s needs with ample car parking / disabled parking on site. Ramp and lift access is available to the conference suites.
Why not let us take the strain out of organising your next private function?
