Hellaby Hall Country House, Rotherham

Hellaby Hall is a small, Grade II* listed country house from the late seventeenth century, which occupies a dominant place in the local landscape. It had experienced extensive fire damage before being purchased by Whiteley Geddes Developments. Proposals were made to repair and extend the hall to create a 52-bedroom luxury hotel.

Close liaison took place with Rotherham Borough Council and English Heritage to ensure that the historic elements of the building were respected. Of particular interest was the main facade of ashlar stone with sash windows, which were thought to be the earliest examples of this type of window in South Yorkshire.
