A Grade-II listed Victorian country house and wedding venue is on the market for £3million. 

Calthwaite Hall is a mid-19th-century hall, near Penrith, said to be one of Queen Victoria’s nephew's homes. 

The property is being marketed by David Britton Estates. 

The mansion, which offers over 10,000 square feet of living space, is currently being used as a private residence and also operating as a successful wedding venue with nine holiday lodges on site. 

Included in the 7.5 acres of land is an outdoor swimming pool and an additional two-bedroom holiday cottage, providing an opportunity for additional income. 

The home inside is filled with high ceilings, elegant windows, ornate fireplaces, and decorative coving as well as its signature central staircase.

The accommodation is distributed over four floors with four spacious ground floor reception rooms, a country house dining kitchen, and an array of practical rooms including a butler’s pantry, laundry, utility room, and cellar.

In addition to five double bedrooms and accompanying bathrooms, the first floor also includes a west wing consisting of three more bedrooms, a dining lounge, a kitchen, and a bathroom.

David Britton, managing director of David Britton Estates, said: “Calthwaite Hall is a magnificent Victorian Gothic revival mansion house, steeped in history.

"We were full of a huge amount of excitement to get the opportunity to even go in and have a look.

"It's been rare within my career that I've seen a staircase of such magnitude and coupled with the story of being Queen Victoria’s favourite nephew's house, it's stirred the emotions of all of us within the company, thinking back nostalgically at having the opportunity to market such a piece of history.

"With the significant amount of accommodation and grounds, this would suit such a multi-faceted array of buyers that we are excited about finding that next person to take this property on to be custodians for the next generations."

An added bonus for potential buyers is the existing planning permission for an additional one-bedroom holiday unit adjacent to the cottage.

The real estate listing states that viewing is by appointment only.
