WELCOME TO THE YORKSHIRE AREA SECTION OF THE NUM WEBSITE

 

NUM, YORKSHIRE AREA MINERS' HOME, SCALBY NEAR SCARBOROUGH

Low Hall was built by Wilhelm Rowntree between 1902 and 1905 in the village of Scalby near Scarborough.

Wilhelm Rowntree was a member of the world famous Rowntree chocolate confectioners in York.

The Hall is set in some 17 acres of grounds, including lawns and gardens which have won many honours over the years.

In 1926 Low Hall was purchased by the South Yorkshire Miners Welfare Committee for the use as a Convalescent Home and in 1977 it was purchased by the NUM (Yorkshire Area) who are the currently the owners of the Home.

Low Hall has 31 bedrooms with accommodation for up to 50 people in a mixture of twin and single rooms, all of which are en-suite.

The dining room is beautifully decorated with seating for up to 60 people, in a light and open setting.

There is an excellent conservatory with wicker seats and tables which lead to a terrace overlooking part of the magnificent North York Moors National Park.

The Hall has a first class bar where you can relax and if the weather is fine you can sit in the beer garden.

There is a full size snooker table and seating around for spectators. There is also a pool table in the room adjacent to the snooker room.

The main lounge is just the place to sit and relax by the fireplace which is said to be the finest in the district. Just sit back and let your meal digest.

The hall has a magnificent library which is a perfect setting for residents to relax and read.

Outside there is a first class crown green bowling facility which is exclusively used by residents and guests. There is also a 9-hole putting green which again is exclusive use of residents and guests.
