Introduction

Long Marston Hall dates in part from the late sixteenth century, with further extensions in the seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The house is reputed as being the headquarters for Oliver Cromwell at the battle of Marston Moor and is without question a landmark home in  North Yorkshire. Within the Hall can be found extensive oak panelling, which it is thought to  pre-date the original building, and a fine Jacobean staircase. The present owners have significantly improved the property and  have invested considerable resources giving it a notable contemporary flare and quite superb  accommodation befitting to modern day family living. Of particular note are the fine breakfast kitchen, magnificent formal reception rooms and opulent bedroom suites, all of which are presented to a luxurious standard and specification. The gardens also compliment the house very well. To the west front of the house is a sheltered flagged courtyard with a box parterre garden and several access points from the house. This is screened by a tall yew hedge on the other side of which is gravelled parking for several vehicles and a double carport constructed of oak. There are a series of gardens with the main area situated to the rear of the house which faces south and east and is predominately laid to lawn with surrounding well stocked herbaceous borders. A cutting in the wall leads through to an entertaining / BBQ area along with a recently constructed summer house. Finishing off the garden area is a flat grass paddock ideal of children to play in or ponies. (there is a vehicular right of way to the paddock if required)
