Tempest Hall Yorkshire

Tempest Hall North of England

A Grade 1 historic house.

This house is as English as the land it stands on – and the Estate has been there since 1097. Tempest Hall has belonged to the Tempest Baronet family for 900 years. The grandeur of the State Rooms will take your breath away and the bedrooms are both luxurious and designed to give every guest striking views of the beautifully landscaped Yorkshire parkland and the 17th century formal gardens. The 3000 acres of gardens, woodland and open countryside are perfect for walking, cycling, fishing, tennis and picnics.

The elegant interiors are sumptuously furnished, yet Tempest Hall never feels like a museum or even a country club – it remains a cherished and authentic home, just as it was originally conceived. The ambience is relaxed yet luxurious, with outstanding food, skilled staff and an extensive wine cellar at your disposal.

You can hire Tempest Hall alone, or together with the cottages on the Estate to accommodate up to 75. There's also a wonderful state-of-the-art wellness and conference centre making this is the ideal venue for business conferences, parties and big family gatherings.

Guest Reviews

This was a great find. The best event location in the north of England. We were well looked after and enjoyed an experience that was far better than expected. Thank you Tempest Hall. We'll be back.
