The House

Sewerby Hall is a grade one listed building constructed throughout 1714 to 1720 by the Greame family. Between 1808 and 1856 numerous additions were made to the house including the portico, stable block, gatehouse, balustrade and conservatory (now the Orangery). It is a very fine example of an early Georgian house with 19th century additions. In September 2013 the house closed to visitors for the start of the refurbishment project which would see it restored to how it would have looked in 1910; the house is now open in all its splendour following this refurbishment.

From Saturday, 19 March until Sunday, 30 October 2016

Led guided tours take place at 11.30am and 1.30pm every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Visitors can join the staff to find out more about the house and the lives of the people who lived here with costumed tours and interpretation every Wednesday.
