In the picturesque village of Askham is Askham Hall, which dates back to the 13th century, and which has recently been transformed from a stately family home into a unique & contemporary stylish retreat. It offers dining and accommodation as well as the gardens.
Askham Hall, opposite St peter’s Church, is a 14th century pele tower converted into an Elizabethan mansion in the mid 16th century by Thomas Sandford, whose family lived in it until 1828 when it became a rectory.
Askham Hall has been the home of Lord Lonsdale since the dismantling of nearby Lowther
Castle (also now open as a visitor attraction).
