Description of the house
The Dunkenhalgh Hotel is described in its listing as substantially nineteenth-century but incorporating parts of c. 1600 construction. It is built in sandstone that is partly rendered, it has roofs of slate with some stone-slate. There are two storeys, and the building has a complex T-shaped plan. The entrance front is embattled with five asymmetrical bays. There is a single-storey porch, and the outer bays form towers, the east tower having crow-stepped parapets. On top of the building is a glazed circular lantern. There are several family portraits in the Portfait Room. Since 1950 the house has undergone many changes and extensions.
