History of Eggleston Hall

Bought by the Gray family in 1918 as a present for Sir William’s Gray’s son returning safely from WW1, there has been a house at the site since the 16th century. The Hall has not just been a family home: Eggleston has operated as a finishing school, a home for convalescing officers during WW2, and was the location for ITV’s Ladette to Lady for four series.

Reviews

Dear William and Juliet

We wanted you to know how much we all enjoyed our stay at Eggleston Hall last week. It is a beautiful house in an amazing location . Those views must be some of the best in the county, if not the country. The Hall provided a very grand, spacious, but comfortable, setting for a three generations family get together. The large well equipped kitchen, the generous dining room, the billiards room, the table tennis and swimming in the river were particularly appreciated - along with the proximity of the tearoom and gardens. The dogs had a great time too.

Thank you
Excellent accommodation
Many thanks William for your appreciation of how we left your home. I will forward your comments to all members of my party all of which were absolutely delighted with their stay.
We had a great time - all of us, ages 6 - 75 and everything in between. The Hall is a delight with so much room everywhere. The bedrooms and bathrooms were wonderful and the furnishings all through the house were impressive. The kitchen was amazing. The wi-fi was a bit intermittent but with so much to do it didn't matter greatly, although the youngsters would have appreciated it. Tennis, snooker and table tennis were much enjoyed. Thank you - we had a ball
Thank you very much indeed for the use of your house this weekend.  We had a really lovely, relaxing time celebrating mum's 80th and couldn't have found more perfect accommodation or a more perfect location.
Fantastic  place with lots to do! We stayed here with 15 family members from 18 to 76 years old and we all had a great time.  There is lots to do for everyone and it is a beautiful place, set in very picturesque grounds. The kitchen is a good size and has excellent facilities, easily able to accommodate cooking for all of us, with several ovens and hobs.  There is a really good dining hall which can accommodate 20+ people around a long table and it was really nice to have dinner together. Lots of bedrooms and bathrooms all very good.Lots of activities, nice walks, Tennis courts, table tennis, board games and for me the best activity is a full size snooker table together with a with a good sound system!

We couldn't have chosen a better place to spend a long weekend with the family and we are definitely going to try and organise another in the not too distant future.
Once again Eggleston Hall provided a great venue for an extended family gathering. We were lucky enough to catch the last of the daffodils- quite a magnificent sight even as they faded. The unusually warm weather at the end of the week meant a few brave members of the party - and the dogs - were able to enjoy swimming in the river. Nineteen of us ate lunch outside in brilliant sunshine, to celebrate our parents Diamond Wedding Anniversary. Just some of the many memories to treasure.
Hardly a cottage with more space to explore in one room than your average London flat....this is the place to relax, rewind and enjoy. Perfect for our family .... room to be together and room to be apart. Very important when the youngest is 10 and the eldest 85; Bedrooms a plenty and bathrooms too, dark skies, warm kitchen, grand halls and much to do for old fashioned entertainment. There is also Wi-Fi for those who can't survive without; A perfect family retreat for a special occasion.
It's quite a property to tidy, I am used to a 4 bed!

We had a wonderful stay and I have recommended the place to friends and family.
