Surrounded by a 60 acre lake, Nunsmere Hall is a haven of peace and quiet and is the epitome of an English country house.
Built around 1900 for Sir Aubrey Brocklebank and his wife Grace, Nunsmere Hall's past is entwined with England's maritime history and the aristocratic liners of the 20th Century.
The family remained at Nunsmere Hall until the Second World War when the building became a temporary hospital. John Brocklebank, who had grown up at Nunsmere, inherited the family title in 1953 upon the death of his elder brother and some years later, he reluctantly accepted the Chair of Cunard. In 1963, through his prompting, a new Cunard (Queen) was on the drawing board. This was to become the QE2.
Today Nunsmere Hall still stands in the setting which so entranced Sir Aubrey and Lady Grace. This privately owned hotel has been restored and sympathetically extended by its present owners.
