Staunton Harold,
Ashby de la Zouch,
LE65 1RT


Now a private house, the Hall has a long and varied history. Most of the current building dates back to the period between 1760 and 1778 and was built by the 5th Earl Ferrers. It was the seat of the Shirley family for over 500 years until 1954 and was used during the Second World War by the army and then to house prisoners of war.

After the sale of the estate, it passed into institutional use first as a Cheshire home then later as a Sue Ryder hospice before being bought and renovated by the current owners.
