eshton hall

TENANTS have the chance to step back in time as one of the Yorkshire Dales' most historic homes becomes available to rent.

Eshton Hall was once the home of Sir Mathew Wilson MP, whose family were associated with the grade II listed building near Gargrave for over 300 years.

Eshton Hall

In 1923 the imposing hall was leased by Arthur Stanley Wills of the tobacco company and cigarette card pioneers WD & HO Wills, who lived there until his death in 1935.

Now people have the chance to follow in their historical footsteps as the famous former library in the hall -- now converted into a ground and first-floor duplex apartment -- is available to rent through the Ikley office of letting agent Linley & Simpson.

Branch manager Jon Graham said: "This is one of the most illustrious homes we have been invited to let. It offers a rare opportunity for someone to experience its unique heritage first-hand, and follow in the historical footsteps of its past residents.

"The apartment contains many stunning features including the original oak bookcases and detailed plasterwork.

"It holds tremendous appeal for people looking to rent a piece of history, particularly families, and we expect there to be significant interest in the property."

It is available to rent at £1,950 per month. Further information is available by visiting www.linleyandsimpson.co.uk or by calling 01943 816888.
