The Hall is a Grade I listed buildings, with some sensational rooms and furnishings, including Chinese wallpaper

A hidden treasure, one of Beverley's most beautiful Georgian houses, is rarely seen by the public.

The house standing on its own grounds (which were once much larger) was built c. 1760 for the Pennyman family, on a site that once belonged to a medieval hospital. The rooms to be shown are the hall, staircase, and drawing room – added around 1770, probably to the designs of the great northern architect John Carr. They contain a wealth of Georgian detail in plasterwork, marble, wood-carving, furniture and in the drawing room, the famous hand-painted Chinese wallpaper of c.1771 with flowers, insects, frogs and birds. These public rooms are spectacular and the Hall is Grade I listed as ‘of exceptional interest’.
