Dalemain online: information and bookings

Behind the impressive pink, ashlar faηade you will discover the real surprise of Dalemain - its sheer variety.
The name Dalemain means 'manor in the valley', and there has been a settlement here since Saxon times.
The first recorded mention of a building on this site, is of a fortified pele tower in the reign of Henry II; one of a line of towers built to protect the country against marauding Scots to the North.

To this was added a manor hall in the 14th century, with a second tower and in turn, in the 16th century were added two wings housing kitchen and living quarters, one on each side of the main building.

The impressive Georgian front was completed in 1744, built to enclose a central courtyard between the new and the old parts of the house.

The garden facade was rebuilt in 1748 to match the new front, and there have been no major alteration since that time.
