Hollin Hall

{Page under development}

Hollin Hall was the home of a Victorian Bollington industrialist, Joseph Brooke Jr. Built in 1870, this lovely gothic style stone mansion has been tastefully converted into a quality hotel. The front of the hotel enjoys outstanding views down the fields to the west.

On the 1901 census Henry Davenport lived there aged 56 with his wife Hannah and his family and servants. He had made his money as an industrialist in the United States of America and bought the house on his return to England.

During WWII the house was converted to be a children`s convalescent home (the photo was taken at that time). It later became a hotel – the Belgrade – under the same ownership for some decades. In the later 20thC and early 21stC it changed hands a number of times, often with changes to the name of the hotel. The building was enlarged by the addition of a block of bedrooms and an excellent conservatory to house a modern restaurant.
