Little Moreton Hall is a beautiful historical building, it took 100 years to build, which occurred during the English Renaissance. The design of the building incorporates more distinctly medieval architecture however.

Take a look at the knot garden project, enjoy stunningly manicured box hedging, which is lovingly undergoing restoration after the discovery of box blight in 2019.  

At the shop you can buy second hand books and drinks and snack are available at the tearooms. 

The hall was built over 500 years ago, consequently when you visit you can enjoy spiral staircases, uneven floors, cobbled areas, and low doorways. There is however a virtual 3D tour showing upstairs rooms,  mobility parking in the main car park, there are manual wheelchairs for loan, an induction loop in the welcome building. There is also a braille guide. Pushchairs are not allowed in the hall, there are baby changing facilities available and also baby slings and hip carrying infant seats available for loan.   

Part of the Little Moreton Hall that stands today (the great hall and the northern part of the east wing was built between 1504 and 1508) since this time the building has gone through additions, confiscation by the government, being rented back to the family who called it home, then rented to farmers, falling into a ruinous state and being restored to its current state. Come and read about the fascinating history and learn about why the Hall was built, what it stood for, what happened during the civil war and how it then changed hands.  

Q Am I able to book in advance?

Yes you can, and this is actively encouraged, especialy during busier times, like mornings and weekends.

Q Is Little Moreton Hall haunted?

It has been said there is a grey lady who haunts the Long Gallery and also a child has apparently on occasion been heard crying in and around the chapel. During the last restoration work, 18 boots and shoes were discovered, concealed in the building's structure. These were believed to be dated from the 1800s. Historically it is believed that shoes were hidden in the construction of buildings to discourage witches, ghosts and demons. They were also believed to encourage fertility of female occupants.

Q are the grounds pushchair accessible

We think some are accessible, pushchairs are not allowed in the main hall. Child carriers can be borrowed from the main desk.
