Moresby Hall

Moresby Hall is a former manor house overlooking the Cumbrian Fells. It is now an hotel and a Grade I listed building. English Heritage cites it as being one of the most important buildings in Cumbria.


The Hall was once home to the Fletcher family. They supported the Jacobite Rebellion in 1715, and as a consequence the master of the house was taken to London for interrogation. He did not reveal that another supporter was hidden in the walls of Moresby Hall and was doomed to die of starvation as a result. His ghost is said to haunt one of the bedrooms.
