History

The house was built in the 1870s for Lt-Col G. F. Greenall, from the Greenall brewing family, at a cost of £15,700 by Alfred Waterhouse. In 1900 it was purchased by the family of George Kemp, 1st Baron Rochdale. They commissioned Bertram Symons-Jeune to design the water garden at Lingholm. Between 1885 and 1907 Beatrix Potter spent her summer holidays at Lingholm, where she wrote some of her best-known stories. During the First World War the house was used as a hospital for wounded officers.

As a result of Beatrix Potter's connection and unique design by a well respected architect Lingholm was given grade II historic listing by English Heritage in 2013.
