What is claimed to be Britain’s smallest stately home can be seen alongside the A170 at Ebberston near Scarborough in North Yorkshire. Ebberston Hall was built in Palladian style in 1718 for the then Scarborough M.P, William Thompson, and has just eleven rooms in all. The main entrance is made particularly impressive by the sweeping flight of steps leading up to the grand classically treated doorway, giving access to the grandeur of this miniature mansion. Two small lodges, originally on either side of the house were demolished in the 19th century. The present owners are struggling to maintain and restore this unique house, which is open to the public in the summer months.
