RUSHPOOL HALL HOTEL
Victorian Manor House Hotel Saltburn-By-The-Sea

Victorian Manor Hotel Rushpool Hall photo On the coast of North Yorkshire where smugglers once landed secret goods below the North Atlantic cliffs in the skullduggery days of the 1700’s, the tiny sea village of Saltburn was turned into a Victorian Age spa resort Saltburn-By-The-Sea by visionary industrialist Henry Pease, fueled by the mining of iron in the 1800’s, Saltburn By The Sea was noted for its salt water mineral spas, pleasure pier and seacliff lifts. Other spa towns became popular later on and Saltburn remained behind, aging like a Victorian dowager.

Rushpool Hall hanuted bar photoJohn Bell, one of the founders of nearby Teeside, picked a location a mile from Saltburn and the sea cliffs to build his country house in 1864. Rushpool Hall, with a decided Moorish influence in its red brick architecture, is set in a lush green rolling hills estate, planted with exotic trees and plants along with the local wildlife. This unique manor was called one the most picturesque mansions in the North of England at the turn of the century and has hosted famous guests like Winston Churchill and Lawrence of Arabia, and Edward VIII. Rushpool Hall is also reputed host to two ghosts, de rigueur with all old English mansions a nun who peers into the downstairs windows, but leaves no footprints and the “Grey Lady” who vanishes through the walls, apparently accompanied by her own organ music.

Rushpool Hall Hotel retains its Victorian era style with some original period furnishings in the rooms many with four poster bed and rich drapes and tented ceilings. The house was heavily damaged in a fire in 1904 but restored to much of its Victorian style. The hallways, stairways and bar are lined with oak and marble fireplaces. The bar room once housed a Roman Bath in early days but now visitors bathe in deep Chesterfield couches. The fire logs provide cozy warmth in winters and window views of the lush grounds and sea in summer. The restaurant serves traditional English food for that Victorian experience along with international cuisine and a matched wine list. Rushpool Hall Hotel is a popular destination for Victorian style weddings with a choice of conservatory settings and bridal suites. Holiday Cabin Rushpool photoThe property has holiday cabins on the grounds for families and groups. Near the hotel are sea cliff walks, the Saltburn Smugglers Heritage Center and the original Ship Inn (see Saltburn Smugglers), the Saltburn Victorian pier which has suffered over the years, but still remains one of the few left from the age, with the lifts turned into a funicular, and the spooky Whitby Abbey ruins and Captain Cook history at Whitby about 20 minutes away. The hotel is 2 minutes drive from the Saltburn train station and 40 minutes from Teeside Airport. © Bargain Travel Europe
