This site is NOT open to public.
Brief description of site
Taitlands is situated just to the south of Stainforth on the Settle Road. It is a single phase building where the house and gardens were planned as an integral whole and not much altered over the last 150 years. A combination of an integrated design with a high level of preservation gives the site its significance. Features include a walled kitchen garden, carriage drive, specimen trees, sundial and coach house. The house was a youth hostel until 2007, but its current use is unknown.
Brief history of site
The house and gardens were built and developed for Thomas Redmayne, a wealthy mill and quarry owner, and his wife Jane between 1831 and 1848. In 1862 the house passed to Thomas Redmayne's son, Henry. It was sold by auction in 1868. It was bought by the Stackhouse family who remained there until 1911 and eventually became a Youth Hostel in 1942.
