Morland Church (next to the house)
Morland is an extremely old settlement - at least 1500 years, and possibly much longer. The reason for its existence may be the Powdonnet Spring below the church, which produces a large and constant flow of fresh water. The church is dedicated to St Laurence and may have been there since at least 664. The church tower is the only Saxon tower in the north-west of England and was built in c.1050. The village has changed in size several times over the centuries, but now is home to about 350 people in 190 houses.
A booklet is available which explains four attractive 3-4 mile walks starting in Morland.
Mill Yard Café
The attractive Mill Yard Café is just outside the front gate, in the centre of Morland village. It serves excellent breakfasts, coffees, lunches and teas every day except Tuesday, and homemade pizzas on Friday nights. It also has a private dining room which can be hired and seats up to 24.
The Crown Inn
The Crown Inn is our local pub, also just outside the front gate. It opens every evening except Monday, and serves meals at weekends.
Appleby Brewery is a craft ale micro-brewery which has recently moved into the old Victorian stables of Morland House by the front gate. Fred Mills brews delicious ales including Midlife Crisis, Senior Moment, and Middle Aged Spread, and there is also a retail beer shop and a small bar. Brewery tours specially for house guests can be arranged - call 01931 714348.
If you are thinking more of a quiet weekend away than a large family party, then Greengill Holidays offers self-catering cottages in Morland for between 2 and 6 people, plus a campsite and a bunk barn sleeping up to 16.
If your accommodation requirements are on a larger scale, Morland Hall is on the outskirts of the village and has 21 bedrooms across four properties, sleeping up to 48 people. The beautifully-restored buildings are available for weddings, parties, celebrations and corporate events. And if even Morland Hall isn't big enough for you, you could consider booking both the House and the Hall.
