Whether you call it a castle, a stately home or a mansion, the 19th-century Capernwray Hall is a wonderfully interesting place to stay, surrounded by 127 acres of spectacular forest, parkland, lake and gardens. A fantastic place to experience peace and connect with God — or on family weeks, a brilliant environment for children to enjoy!
A family home
Capernwray Hall was built in the mid-1800s as a private home for the Lord Lieutenant of the county of Lancaster, and it belonged to the Martons. Now it belongs to the wider family of God — and it still has that feel of a much-loved family home. That’s just how we like it. Before long you’ll be treating it as your own home too.
Sports hall and outdoor games
You might not want to sit quietly all the time! In the Sports Hall you can play football, basketball, cricket, hockey, volleyball and dodgeball. When the weather is better, try our outdoor facilities for football, netball, volleyball, croquet, putting, shuffleboard, tennis and outdoor chess, or just walk in our beautiful gardens.
Organised activities will be arranged, and you can also use the facilities in your free time.
Easy to get to
You can get to Capernwray easily from the M6, Liverpool, Manchester, northern England and Wales, the Midlands and Scotland.
Surrounded by National Parks
Capernwray is sandwiched between the waterfalls and rugged crags of the Yorkshire Dales National Park to the east, and the dramatic mountains and lakes of the Lake District National Park to the west.
Capernwray Hall was built in the mid-1800s as a private home for the Lord Lieutenant of the county of Lancaster, and the historic city of Lancaster is not far away. The cities of Liverpool and Manchester lie to the south, but far enough away not to encroach on the stunning environment our guests value.
