Carlton Towers is a magnificent Grade 1 listed country house, it is the family home of Lord & Lady Gerald Fitzalan Howard, younger brother of the 18th Duke of Norfolk. Located within a 3,000-acre estate with lake in the village of Carlton, in North Yorkshire, surrounded by 250 acres of parkland & woodland. 

Boasting 16 guest rooms which accommodate 31 guests, each have been individually designed and furnished by Lady Gerald Fitzalan Howard to offer a tranquil haven from the hustle & bustle of the modern world. Each room is carefully curated and is rich in architectural features and artwork, whilst the palatial décor embodies the surrounding history and nature.

Downstairs comprises of the Duchesses Dining Room for intimate dinners or lunches with the cosy Housekeeps Sitting Room next door. The kitchen is the heart of every home and is located in the refurbished servant's passage. Today the kitchen is a beautifully appointed area with six ovens and hobs and is where you are able to prepare a lavish feast. 

Originally recorded as one of the Yorkshire manors held by Robert de Bruce at the time of the Domesday survey. The Carlton Towers we see today has a stately Victorian appearance. But peel back the layers of history and you will find a much older house. The three-storey block to the left is the original Jacobean Carlton Hall of 1614, which may retain some of the medieval house of the Stapleton family who had inherited the estate in 1301. The long wing on the right was added circa 1777, which is the date recorded on the clock, by Thomas Stapleton probably to the design of Thomas Atkinson of York.

In 1990 Gerald and Emma moved from London to Carlton Towers. Prior to their arrival, the house had been unoccupied for some 20 years. Gerald & Emma embarked upon an extensive restoration of the house to create a beautiful family home for them and their three children. Arthur, Florence and Grace. But this isn’t what makes this home special. You only discover that when crossing the threshold.
