Askham Hall sits on the edge of the Lake District surrounded by the majestic Cumbrian countryside. This Grade I listed building dates back to the 14th century with only the restaurant being a modern addition to the building. Public areas are warm and welcoming with the open fire adding to the charm. Bedrooms and their en suites cater well for the modern guest – many thoughtful extras are provided as standard. The award-winning food uses produce from the kitchen gardens as well as the farms within the estate. The friendly, hands-on team add to the wonderful guest experience.
