A short history of Stanley House, Mellor

Stanley House wsa built in the first half of the 17th Century for a manorial gentry, as suggested by the architectural character, and was the property of a family from whom it took its name. For a long period of time it was the reputed manor-house of Mellor. The manor was purchased in circa 1788, by Henry Sudell and sadly the status of Stanley House sank to a rented farmhouse. The estate was then sold in 1827. By 1877 it was reported that Stanley House was in a ruinous condition. Until 1999, the original barns were used for dairy catttle and the tenant farmer lived in a small part of Stanley House. Later the Land and Buildings were purchased by Leehand Leisure Ltd who had plans for converting the property into a prestigious country house hotel. These plans met with considerable planning issues as Stanley House is a Grade II listed building, classified 'at risk' and is within the greenbelt. Planning was approved in 2003. The hotel opened for buisness in 2004 and has since become one of Lancashire's finest hotels and Wedding Venues.
