About Hagg Hill Hall - Self Catering Cottage Holidays

Dating from the 1600’s this small gentleman’s country residence is situated in the heart of a farming hamlet with converted barns nearby. Owned by Lord Humphreys, it is a fine example of a Grade-II-listed stone manor house. This magnificent house is full of historical character, and retains a wealth of interesting features with stone mullioned windows, fine old oak beams, heavy oak crux beams, particularly visible in the upper floor, and decorative fireplaces in many rooms. It offers a substantial venue for large families or groups wishing to holiday together. The house is on several levels with interesting staircases leading off in various directions. All of the rooms are of a generous size, but the house has an air of homeliness and comfort. There is a wealth of antique furniture and a number of very grand four poster beds.
