The owners of the grade one-listed Lancashire building are readying plans to convert it into a luxury resort featuring a private members club, hotel, spa and art centre.
The 400-year old mansion was most recently used as a 24-bedroom private hospital but has been vacant since April, following the hospital’s closure after 35 years.
Now, owners Guy and Amber Hindley plan to invest £20m to convert the former hospital, creating an “unrivalled escape”.
“I always had ambitions to transform the hall into something great though never imagined I’d have the opportunity to own it,” Guy Hindley said.
“Amber and I are now setting out to transform hospitality in the North and create a destination like no other. We’re looking to create an exclusive environment that blends art and culture with like-minded people in a setting that is unrivalled in the UK.
“We want our members and guests to treat this as a second home here guests can dine, stay, work and play and most importantly, escape.”
The mansion is located within the 1,000-acre Gisburne Park Estate in the Ribble Valley, acquired by Lord Ribblesdale in 1614.
The Hindley family has owned the estate for the last 100 years.
