Owston Hall is a Historic Listed Building and the addition of 18 Executive Bedrooms in 2007 had to be developed within rules laid down by English Heritage. The building rests gently and sympathetically with the original country house and old hall, while the interior offers the discerning guest the best in both comfort and the latest facilities
The African scene
The African scene referred to in the title is an invention by the artist, but amazingly all the animals shown in the painting at one time lived in the parkland surrounding Owston Hall, which still stands to the north of Doncaster near Askern. The painting was commissioned by Philip Davies Cooke of Owston Hall in 1828. In the following year, it was exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in London.
