The Hall was built circa 1600 by lawyer George Fell. After his death it was passed down to his son and his wife, Judge Thomas Fell and his wife Margaret. In 1652, George Fox, the founder of Quakerism, visited their home. Margaret Fell heard his ministry and was convinced along with most of her household. After Thomas Fell died in 1658 she ran Swarthmoor Hall as a centre of Quaker activity and haven from persecution.
You can visit the Hall and immerse yourself in what would have been the life of the Fells at the time. All rooms have been restored and display life in the 1650s.
Update: the Hall is currently closed, only the guest accommodation is open.
Guests can stay in one of the 14 on-site rooms and suites (some are accessible). An aisle of the Hall has been refurbished and transformed into beautiful bedrooms, while neighbouring buildings have been transformed into self-catering spacious suites.
Update: Only the self-catering accommodation is available to book at the moment.
