Creskeld Hall

Creskeld Hall is a grade II listed Country House located in Arthington, near Bramhope, West Yorkshire, England.

It belonged to the Rhodes family in 1846 and has been privately owned by the same family since the early 1900s. It is known to many people as Home Farm from the ITV soap Emmerdale, a part it has been playing for over 36 years.

A flat-roofed billiard room extension was added by the owner in 1919. This connects the 16th century chapel with the main body of the house, and has enclosed a courtyard where the front entrance used to be.

The gardens of Creskeld Hall are open to the public most years as part of the National Garden Scheme "Yellow Book", with the proceeds being split between the National Garden Scheme, and a charity of the owner's choice. The house sits in approximately 3.5 acres (14,000 m2) of garden, and has many rare colours of rhododendron collected by one of the family in the 1930s. The grounds also house a mature Monkey Puzzle tree.

The estate farm is home to a herd of pedigree Holstein dairy cattle. The linage of the herd can be traced back to its inception by one of the owners of the estate in the early 1900s.
