This Jacobean house can be found nestled in the shadow of Pendle Hill.

Gawthorpe Hall was built for the Shuttleworth family in 1605, remaining virtually untouched until the mid-19th century, when it was sympathetically remodelled by Sir Charles Barry and AW Pugin.

The house has many original features ornate plasterwork ceilings, panelling, paintings from the National Portrait Gallery and the internationally renowned Rachel Kay-Shuttleworth textile collection.
