About Us

South facing and high on a plateau between Dovedale and the Manifold valley, Stanshope Hall is in the heart of the Peak District National Park in central England, on a small road between the villages of Ilam and Alstonefield. It is seven miles to the nearest town, Ashbourne.

The Hall is a listed building dating back to the 1600s, and is most unusually decorated. We have been singled out by many guides, and have appeared in the Which? Hotel Guide every year since 1994.

Stanshope Hall is also four star accredited by VisitEngland the official tourist board for England. The tourist board star system has a maximum of five stars. They relate to the general standard of the accommodation, and the quality of service.
