Crook Hall farm Bed and breakfast is located in the village of Crook, Near Kendal in the Lake District, Cumbria. The attractive and historic village of Crook lies on the Kendal to Bowness-on-Windermere road. The main feature of the village is the Manor Chapel Tower, the tower of what was the manor chapel for Crook Hall, stands on a hill above the village. Dating from around 1620, it was in use from the 16th to the end of the 19th century. Crook Hall, which now survives as a farmhouse, was once the home of the influential Phillipson family. One of their members, Robert Phillipson, who was a Royalist officer during the Civil War, acquired quite a reputation in the area; he came to be known locally as 'Robin the Devil'. The village pub, the whitewashed Sun Inn, dates from 1711. The Sun is a traditional Lakeland inn with stone floors and roaring fires in the winter, it began life as a row of cottages, the occupants of one of them served beer to travelers from a front room.
