Stunning 18th Century Stately Home in the Picturesque Lune Valley

A beautiful country mansion situated in the idyllic Lune Valley. This historic home is an outstanding example of Georgian architecture and offers a wonderful insight into the grandeur of times gone by. A truly breath-taking destination which will make your special day or event an unforgettable experience.

A unique opportunity for family or friends up to a maximum of 12 people to occupy this magnificent Grade II* listed stately home, which has been preserved without major alteration from the time it was built in 1795.

The house and grounds to which you will have access of course, offer a stunning backdrop for your photographs whenever you choose to visit. Each season at QPH has its own magic. First to appear in January, on the tree-lined drive, are snow drops followed by hosts of daffodils and then with the advent of Spring proper, a purple haze of bluebells. Rhododendrons bloom magnificently in the summer along with the roses and orchards of the walled garden. Autumn turns the woodland red and gold and in winter snow-capped fells grace the skyline while a roaring log fire warms the main hall with its integrated artistic balustrades leading to first floor bedrooms.

QPH History

Originally the estate was owned by the Crown but was sold in 1630. Building commenced on the present Hall in 1795 and was completed in 1798. Renowned architect, Thomas Harrison, is believed to have designed the Hall on bequest of Charles Gibson of Preston, a wealthy lawyer. Such was Gibson’s eccentricity that he even had the road, which ran in front of the original building, moved so the Hall would not be visible to ‘vulgar passing eyes’. QPH has been home to wealthy industrialists and millionaires. Everywhere you turn, you see the past in its magnificent architecture, ornate ceilings, intricate cornices and opulent gilding.

You must remember, however, this is an period building with a rich and exciting history but has its share of the olde worlde faults, and bumps that go off in the night

QPH Location

You would be forgiven for thinking that QPH is in the middle of nowhere, as it is nestled out of sight in its private parkland and such beautiful views, of the Lune Valley, Yorkshire Dales, Lakeland Fells and Forest of Bowland and it is the gateway to the Lake District. However, this private and secluded retreat is actually only 3 miles from the historic city of Lancaster  You would never know its close proximity to the bustling city as you wander the peaceful wooded grounds which are home to deer, hare, rabbits, squirrels, grouse, pheasants, and bird life. Explore the stunning ancient Walled Garden where the monks spent their time and energy in creating a secret place with its tales of bygone years & its hauntings.
