A Brief History...

Detton Hall’s is a Grade II* listed Elizabethan eight-bed manor house which was listed in England’s 1000 Best Houses by Simon Jenkins and described as “A house of surprise and pleasure”. Full of intrigue with panelled rooms, hidden nooks, crannies and fascinating period detail. The house is thought to have stood on the site of Detton Hall since the Domesday book when in the ownership of the Detton family, the present structure is thought to date from 1575. Since that time the property has changed hands only seven times.

Detton hall is an excellent example of a deserted medieval settlement, which was the manor house to a small community that once had its own chapel. However, following a series of poor harvests and the Black Death, with its widespread effects, all that is left of the settlement is a series of shallow earthworks and hollow ways where there were once roads.

Detton Hall is approached up a long driveway from where its beautiful half-timbered and stone three-storey façade can be appreciated. There is a medieval site on the grounds of which the driveway follows the exact route of the original medieval road way, the grounds of the lost medieval Village make for a perfect setting for our Teepee Village!
