Historic splendour meets contemporary inspiration

Perfectly sited by previous generations of the famous Gillow furniture-making dynasty in spectacular surroundings, Leighton Hall’s conservatory immediately impresses and captivates. Complementing the hall’s impressive Victorian Gothic frontage, it opens to glorious parkland backed by the dramatic Lakeland fells. Carefully and expertly restored, it now glows, once again, with gleaming glass and perpendicular white tracery, perfect for every social, business, and celebratory occasion.

The team at Leighton have created a relaxing, inspiring and flexible business and social space which maximises the benefits of comfort and connectivity. From decoration to individual demands, Leighton’s famously friendly staff are focussed on making it your personalised, perfect environment.
