Kentmere Hall


Kentmere Hall (now known as Pele Tower House) is located in the Kentmere valley to the west of St Cuthbert's Church. The pele tower dates from the 14th century, extended into a hall / farmhouse in the late 14th or early 15th century, with later alterations and rear kitchen extension. The hall was the residence of the Gilpin family and Bernard Gilpin, the influential theologian, was born here in 1517. Kentmere Hall is a grade II* listed building on the National Heritage List for England. A sympathetic conservation and alteration of the building was undertaken by Woollacott Gilmartin Architects; this work was a prestigious RIBA National Award winner in 2021.
