Whernside Manor, previously known as \’West House\’, has a rich and varied history. Constructed around the mid 17th Century the house was owned by the Sill family, with links to plantations in Jamaica, in the 1700s. There are reputed links to Bronte\’s \’Wuthering Heights\’ and other fascinating tales. At some stage the house was sold to the Army and remained an Army property until approximately 25 years ago, when it was purchased by current owner. Since that time the house has been sensitively refurbished, although some further modernisation is now required.
The house has previously been used for B & B and has huge potential for a number of other uses including Country House Hotel, wedding venue, private residence, second home or hostel subject to the granting of any necessary permission.
