Restoring Netherby Hall

Margo and Gerald Smith, the owners of Netherby Hall, are undertaking a major project beginning with putting the fabric of this important building back into good order.

" Hopefully what we are starting in a corner of North East Cumbria today will inspire others to appreciate the value of preserving historic buildings in a way that involves them continue to function for the purpose for which they were constructed.

One of the attractions of Netherby Hall for me when we bought it a few years ago was the chance to take a stand against this well-meaning destruction of our past.

Included in the plans for the stables is a meeting room to accommodate pre-booked parties coming to learn about the how the stables of great houses such as Netherby Hall work. "


Work on the Walled Garden

Guests at Netherby Hall will witness a working stables with carriages being driven as well as being able to see the restored Walled Garden which supplies Pentonbridge Inn and, if we manage to exclude the deer that are currently eating everything, hopefully in future also the restored grounds.
