The House

Sewerby Hall is a grade one listed building constructed throughout 1714 to 1720 by the Greame family. Between 1808 and 1856 numerous additions were made to the house including the portico, stable block, gatehouse, balustrade and conservatory (now the Orangery). It is a very fine example of an early Georgian house with 19th century additions. In September 2013 the house closed to visitors for the start of the refurbishment project which would see it restored to how it would have looked in 1910; the house is now open in all its splendour following this refurbishment.

Our volunteer-led guided tours of the house take place every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at 11.30 am and 1.30 pm until November 4, 2018. Please be aware that they are subject to volunteer availability.

Costumed Interpretation every Wednesday and Friday.
