The Rise Hall you see today is mostly the result of 18th and early-19th-century building, but its history goes much further back.
Rise is recorded in the Domesday Book as being owned by Cnut in 1066.
It had a series of owners after this, including Richard Plantagenet, Duke of Gloucester, better known as King Richard III.
There has been a manor house on this site since 1716, and it was remodelled several times during the 18th century. Each time it was remodelled, the old building has been added on to. You can see parts of the 16th and 17th-century buildings in the courtyards and along the north side of the house, as well as the Jacobean panelling which was discovered in what had been the estate office, and is now the pub.
By the early 21st century, the hall was empty and becoming increasingly derelict. It was bought by TV host and property expert, Sarah Beeny, and her husband, who undertook a huge programme of restoration, including renovating the roof and guttering and dealing with wet and dry rot. The couple used their extensive knowledge of the property to recreate key features, such as the stolen dining room fireplace.
The restoration was televised for Channel 4 and broadcast in 2010 and 2011.
The hall is now a successful wedding and events venue, available for you to enjoy!
Rise Hall is situated in the East Yorkshire countryside, close to the city of Hull. The cities of Leeds and York are less than 90 minutes away. It can easily be accessed by road, an approximate 30-minute drive from the M62.
