Calthwaite Hall is a Bridgerton-esque manor formerly owned by a real British Duke, which has hit the market for £3million. The beautiful property comes with 11 bedrooms and masses of original Victorian style.

The manor was once owned by the real-life fifth Duke of Devonshire, William Cavendish - who is documented to have lived simultaneously with his socialite wife and mistress - a fitting nod to the salacious world of royalty, gossip and scandal on Netflix’s hit regency drama.

“This remarkable property would indeed not be out of place in Bridgerton,” said David Britton, Managing Director of David Britton Estates.

"Calthwaite Hall is a piece of living history that offers an unparalleled opportunity to own a significant landmark and enjoy the lifestyle that comes with it.”

The property, which is in Calthwaite, Cumbria, has a grand entrance hall and boasts impressive interior design, and an orangery with a stunning space to host Netflix-worthy social events in its 7.5 acres.

Regal features create a feeling of elegance and charm, with spectacular spiral staircases, four poster beds and a swimming pool. If horses are your thing, the manor comes with a stable block, tack room and floodlit manège for your equine friends.

David added: “Calthwaite Hall captures the essence of historical prestige but also offers a modern lifestyle aligned with luxury and exclusivity.

“This property promises an extraordinary living experience and a lucrative business venture, making it a coveted jewel in the crown of Cumbria."

Near Penrith, it's between the UNESCO world heritage site of the Lake District and the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The property has been home to aristocrats for centuries, and the Grade II listed home which is on the National Heritage List for England was built in 1837 for Thomas Dixon Esq.

Regency era properties, design and fashion have become popular since the debut of Bridgerton in 2020, the beloved show exploring the loves and lives of eight siblings in the times of King George III.

The Calthwaite Hall estate also contains a wedding venue and holiday accommodations.

The property is being marketed by David Britton Estates.
