Commissioned by Hugo Meynell Ingram as a family home the hall was completed in 1871. Elizabethan in style with Jacobean overtones, the lofty gables, turreted water towers, 48 chimneys and mullioned windows are all excellent examples of the period.
The stately home boasts a grand entrance hall and decadent oak-panelled Long Gallery, which spans more than 100 feet in length. Admire the breathtaking ornamental ceiling designed by Victorian architect George Frederick Bodley.
Thanks to a painstaking restoration programme, all the public rooms radiate the same sense of splendour as they did during the years when Hoar Cross Hall was a private residence. Many are still touched by the presence of the Meynell Ingram family, from the assertive family motto in the entrance hall to the hand-carved monograms in the Ballroom, along with the grand staircase and stunning Chapel.
