House History

Blaisdon Hall lies 10 miles South West of Gloucester, overlooking the stunning Severn Valley. It is an elegant Jacobean style Grade ıı* listed Victorian Mansion House, which still retains its original character with stunning stained glass windows, oak panelling, fabulous fire places and coffered ceilings.

Blaisdon Hall is one of the most famous Victorian houses in Gloucestershire. It was built in 1876 by William Crawshay, who was reputedly the Forest of Dean’s most successful Iron Master, for his son Edwin Crawshay.

Subsequently for almost 60 years the house was owned by one family until in 1935 the property was sold to the Salesion Society, who established an agricultural school for training underprivileged boys. After that, the hall became a private house again. Every year a lot of the old boys still come from all over England and abroad with their children and grandchildren to remember their younger days and pay homage to Blaisdon Hall.
