Sion Hill Hall (Sion Hill House)

  • Built / Designed For: Percy Stancliffe

    House & Family History: Built in 1913, Sion Hill Hall is one of the last Edwardian country houses to be built in Yorkshire before World War I. Designed in the Neo-Georgian style by the renowned architect Walter Brierley, who was known as "the Lutyens of the North," the House is of outstanding architectural merit. Sion Hill Hall was named after Syon House in London.

    Collections: There is a notable collection of art and furniture that was formed by Herbert Mawer in the 20th century. The tradition of collecting continues today, with new additions being made to the collection by Michael Mallaby, who today lives at Sion Hill.

  • Garden & Outbuildings: The House sits in open countryside, surrounded by gardens and parkland. The garden contains a series of large stone sculptures that were originally located on the Stableblock at Fountains Abbey. The Sion Hill Estate is home to the Birds of Prey and Conservation Centre (operated by Falconry UK Limited), with over 70 birds of prey in its care.
