Your Luxury Escape

Life's too short for ordinary holidays, you deserve the chance to escape



Kirkbride Hall

Kirkbride Hall is a newly built traditional style stone clad terraced cottage located in walled cherry and apple orchards of Melmerby Hall and neighbours the quiet and scenic churchyard of the Grade II listed St John’s Church in Melmerby. The former orchard garden of Melmerby Hall is a beautiful and quiet setting for Kirkbride Hall and its adjoining cottages. Kirkbride has open plan access and parking to the front, and a large enclosed patio and garden to the rear – the perfect sun trap on a warm summers day with lots of room for children and pets to play safely. Kirkbride Hall also has private gated access to the 20 acres of mixed woodland grounds of Melmerby Hall through a wrought iron gate set into the orchard wall. The grounds of Melmerby Hall also include woodland paths, water meadows and a tributary to the River Eden.

Kirkbride Hall was completed in early 2015 and, although new, offers all the comforts of a traditional Cumbrian cottage including sandstone walls using stone sourced from within our estate, solid oak floors, antique furniture, and a large welcoming wood burning stove in the comfortable sitting room.

Being within the grounds of Melmerby Hall, sleeping 18 guests, it's ideal for families wishing to be near to each other but not entirely together, with Stag Cottage, sleeping four guests also nearby.
