A short history of Park Hall Hotel

The manor of Charnock was once the site of a Benedictine monastery. It was given to Roger de Poitou by William the Conqueror as payment for his help in invading England.

Later the manor was divided. Sir Henry de Lea owed one half, on which he built a manor house known as Park Hall. The other half of the manor was owned by Richard de Charnock who resided at Charnock Hall. It is he who gave the area it’s name.

The manor house, now named Park Hall Hotel, dates from the 10th Century. In the early 20th century Park Hall was described as being a large 3 gabled Black and White Property, which sat on the banks of its own lake.

A local entrepreneur purchased the land in 1973 and rebuilt the old Manor House. The manor, along with other buildings, were converted into a Hotel complex. At the time the site incorporated a large show jumping arena that was known as the ‘Hickstead of the North’. This was one of the filming locations for the film ‘International Velvet’. Over the years, site ownership has passed through a number of operators and is now owned by the Best Western Hotel chain.

Park Hall sits in a wonderfully unspoilt rural location, being set in 140 acres of beautiful countryside. This venue combines the feel of a modern, contemporary hotel with the charm of authentic historical buildings. It is a stunning location beside a tree fringed lake with a private jetty, which makes it a superb backdrop for photographs.
