Swarthmoor Hall

Swarthmoor Hall is a 16th century country house set in beautiful gardens. A writer commented: “The fictional dramas of Downton Abbey seem relatively tame to the actual events in Swarthmoor Hall’s history. The birthplace of the Quaker movement has all the elements of a great screenplay: love, conflict, conviction and passion.”

Swarthmoor Hall is on the outskirts of Ulverston. M6 – J36. Follow A590 to Ulverston. Turn left off the A590 in the centre of the town following brown tourist road signs.

Currently undergoing some restoration work and maybe closed.
