History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
There was a moated manor house here in the Middle Ages. That house was built of timber, but it was rebuilt in brick during the Tudor period for Sir John Meres, possibly with the aide of architect John Smythson. It stands 3 stories tall, with square windows creating a very symmetrical frontage.
The Hall was owned by the Nevile family for much of its history. The Neviles first came to Aubourn in 1386 and still own land in the village. The Neviles were involved in help Methodism prosper in this area in the early 19th century, and allowed an early Methodist Sunday school to be held at the Hall.
The Hall stands in 10 acres of pretty gardens, with colourful borders and shrubs, lawns, walking trails, rose gardens, and water features.
The house has very limited opening times. The gardens, however, are open regularly throughout the summer months, and at other times for pre-arranged group tours. The Hall is also operating as a wedding venue.
