Details

A stunning grade 1 listed Pele Tower dating back to the 13th century, Askham Hall has been transformed from a stately family abode into a unique and contemporary stylish retreat and restaurant. A luxurious, intimate, unpretentious home from home awaits.

With modern furnishings and fresh decor, whilst carefully retaining the charm and character of this historic house, Askham Hall is somewhere you can kick off your wellies at the front door and relax in down to earth, comfortable surroundings.

The emphasis is on the food, offering an imaginative and creative dining style, using produce locally sourced from the 800 year old Lowther Estate, set menu from £45. The cycle of life in the gardens and fields dictate our menus - we work with the seasons to grow, source and preserve the produce from our surrounding farms and woodland.
