Samlesbury Hall

Built in 1325 Samlesbury Hall is steeped in fascinating history, retaining its original typical black and white exterior, the Hall is almost equidistant between Blackburn and Preston, yet retaining a rural feel. Saved from demolition in the 1920’s by six local businessmen, it remains in the Charitable Trust today with the aim of maintaining and keeping open for the visitors to enjoy.

With the turbulent history of catholic families, the haunting of Lady Dorothy Southworth (and others), a captivating insight into life from the early 14th to the early 20th Century is all waiting to be discovered.

Samlesbury Hall also offers the very best of Lancashire, with exhibitions from local artists, antiques and collectibles and a gift shop, which sells high quality Lancashire produce.

The extensive grounds are delightful and even include a small selection of animals in an ever increasing menagerie. The gardens also feed the kitchen and the award-winning restaurant and coffee lounge.

Samlesbury Hall is open to visitors all year round and promises something for all the family.

Eco-camping pods - Accommodation Self Catering

Accommodation at Samlesbury Hall, in addition to a four star luxury Lodge set within the stunning grounds, are two eco camping pods introduced in Autumn 2013.

These brand new eco camping pods are a more cost-effective form of accommodation. The sheep skin lining will keep guests warm in winter and the special foil situated in the roof will keep the pod cool during the summer months.

The pods are built from reclaimed timber and provide an attractive, dry and spacious camping area for guests. They have a double glazed window, lockable French doors and are designed to cut down the noise made by heavy rain.

Dogs are welcome to stay in pods.

The pods are now available at a price of £40 per pod (1 or 2 people)
