Thorpe House had been a mill owner’s mansion and home until the early 1900s, it was the officers’ quarters for the Royal Engineers during the Second World War. It then lay empty for twelve years until Douglas and Jean Kneen bought it from Commander Selwyn Rawson OBE in 1957. It then became our family home offering gentile living for retired professionals.

"A unique experience"
Thorpe House is a very special place. It is a large grand house and the current owners have maintained it to a high standard including period furniture. The three sisters who own and run this place are excellent hosts who go to great lengths to make you feel at home. Nothing is too much trouble. They have a wealth of knowledge about the local area and can answer most questions. The room was very comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. We will definitely be returning to Thorpe House.

Thank you for your review, especially since we know how much you are involved with specialist wood work. We hope to see you again soon when you visit relatives. In the mean time have a lovely Christmas. Kind Regards.

THORPE HOUSE is situated in the rural heart of West Yorkshire within minutes of Sowerby Bridge, Hebden Bridge and Halifax. This original 18-century mill owner’s mansion has achieved a Grade II listing and been elegantly restored throughout, merging many original features with modern luxuries.

The property stands in its own private grounds surrounded by dense woodland around an impressive private lake. Guests can enjoy quality local produce for breakfast whilst overlooking the grounds or relax in fine surroundings in their elegant bedrooms or our comfortable period lounge.

The house has been described by one of our guests as ‘a lovely place which puts its arms around you and gives you a hug’. It took lots of hard work to create the elegant and relaxing ambience of the place, sourcing original colours, materials and talented craftsmen to decorate the individual rooms. All the renovations are true to the history of the House (take a special look at the old Housekeeper’s room and the walk-in wardrobes.) The cantilever staircase frequently gets a ‘wow’ when guests arrive and the Georgian formality has been called the ‘Downton feel’ by guests.
