History

The history  can be traced right back to the Norman conquest and since then the Hall has been home to several generations of prominent families. Various areas of the Hotel are now named to commemorate these notable occupants.

Five generations of the Monbouchers originally occupied the Beamish Manor, the last family member dying in 1400.

The Monboucher Suite is now a very glamorous function room with full height feature bay windows overlooking the beautifully maintained grounds.

In 1739 Beamish Hall became the home of the Eden family who lived there until 1904. Our restaurant now takes its name from this historic connection.

The Hall eventually came into the Shafto family following the death of Mr Slingsby Eden.

In complete contrast to The Monboucher Suite, the Shafto Hall is a dramatic oak panelled function suite with a small minstrels' gallery.

Upon the death of Robert Shafto in 1949 led to the disposal of the estate to pay off massive death duties and after being used as a public building for a while, the elegant Hall stood empty until August 2000.

In 2004 the Hall was brought privately by the Craggs Family. The building was restored to its former glory after many years of neglect, work on the older parts of the building is still ongoing today.
