Brimming with unique period features and oozing cosy-country charm, step back with us into the rich heritage of Lancaster itself here at Old Hala Farm.
One of the city’s oldest homes, dating back to 1698, Grade II listed Old Hala Farm was reputedly once the gatehouse to Lancaster, whilst its barn to the rear was the coach house.
According to legend, Old Hala Farm was frequented by none other than Lord Nelson himself, where it was rumoured that secret liaisons took place with Lady Hamilton.
Old Hala Farm stood alone, with the addition of its neighbouring terraces taking place in the 1850s and 70s.
Today it stands as a lordly reminder of the solid foundations and values set by our early Georgian ancestors. On the stone lintel above the door reads EM IM 1698, a reference to premier residents John and Elizabeth Mackerell (I and J used to be different shapes for the same letter). Mr and Mrs Mackerell ran a wholesome farm of 25 cattle and 50 sheep whilst also growing crops, while a brother of theirs founded a successful malting business in the city.
With its charming history matched only by the heartwarming character of its secreted cupboards, rustic beams, original flooring and elegant shuttered windows to name but a few…are you ready to take your place in history?
