Wortley Hall was the ancestral home of the Earls of Wharncliffe – the Lords of the Manor of Wortley and has a history going back 500 years.
The old stable block has now been converted to 2 delightful cottages which are are set in the 26 acres of fromal grounds and woodlands of Wortley Hall. The interiors have been fully restored to reflect modern lifestyles but retain the external charm of the old stables. Each cottage also has its own private garden.
The hall is now a hotel and is itself a treasure trove of historical pieces of architecture including period fire places, secret doors, servants quarters and an array of decorative works of art and history.
Guests of the cottage can use the hotel's facilties
The dining room includes original wood panelling; magnificent fireplaces and the ceilings are arguably the finest examples of Renaissance style friezes in Great Britain. The bar is spacious and visitors will also be able to use the games room with snooker, pool and darts facilities.
The hotel boasts a range of lounges and television rooms incorporating an extensive library.
The gardens surrounding the hall include an old ice house, sunken and terraced gardens and include a fossilised tree stump estimated at 250-300 years old.
