One of Blencow Hall's towers was built in the 15th Century, and the other in the 17th. Both fell into ruins after coming under fire from Cromwell's cannon balls in the 1640s, which is where the big gash in the newer tower came from. The hall and gatehouse that join the two towers together dates from around 1590, but the whole Grade 1 listed place has been recently renovated to an award winning standard that has seen it labelled 'super-stylish'. From the renovations 13 bedrooms emerged, with four poster beds and generous fireplaces, a billiards room, a library, and a large fireplace was remodelled into a children's hidey hole.
