Owners of the historic Gisburne Park Estate in the Ribble Valley – the Hindley family, have taken back control of Gisburne Park Hospital and Gisburne Lodge with a view to transforming them into an exclusive retreat with private members club and spa. The hospital and lodge were owned by the family until the mid-1980s when the house was converted to a private hospital.

The Estate, which has been owned by the Hindley family for nearly a century, comprises 1,000 acres and is already home to holiday lodges, a restaurant and a wedding venue, is set to become a luxury resort destination. It is lately known for its popular Gisburne Park Pop-Up festival and open-air cinema nights which have attracted visitors from across the North of England.

The 400-year-old Grade I listed mansion was mostly recently used as a private hospital until its closure earlier this year. The Estate is well known for its high-profile guests including the Queen and Prince Charles. Having hosted such remarkable visitors, Guy Hindley and his wife Amber Mead now wish to welcome guests from across the country to enjoy a luxury experience like no other.  Work is expected to commence on the transformation later this year.

Stephen Greenwood of Farleys Solicitors acted for the buyers, Guy Hindley and Amber Mead, in the purchase. Stephen commented,

Guy and Amber have established a fantastic resort in Gisburn and I’m delighted for them that through their hard work they have managed to bring ownership of the mansion house and associated buildings back to the family.  We’ll look forward to supporting them with their development and wish them all the best for the future.
