This magnificent Grade II listed castle is beautifully situated in acres of private woodland and glorious gardens, in scenic North Lakeland. Dalston Hall's character appearance hides a fascinating history. The area around Dalston Hall was once occupied by the Romans and then the Danes. Later the warrior Scots frequently invaded the area, leading to the construction of fortified structures known as Pele Towers.
Built c.1500, Dalston Hall's Pele Tower initially stood alone. Various additions and extensions and were made in subsequent years. In 1897, extensive refurbishment of the interior took place, together with the construction of the entrance side of the building, creating 'a magnificent mansion surpassing perhaps even its ancient glories', to quote a leading antiquarian of the day.
