Camerton Hall

Camerton Hall, built on the site of a medieval tower house, is situated by the River Derwent, located to the south-west of the village of Camerton in Cumbria. The manor of Camerton was sold by Joseph Curwen to Ralph Cooke of Kendal in 1719. The Cooke familyrebuilt Camerton Hall in 1833, incorporating parts of the medieval tower house into the structure of the Banqueting Hall. In modern times Camerton Hall has been a wedding venue and was refurbished for private functions and as an afternon teas venue.
