The Chimp Manor
(formerly Bennetston Hall)
Bennetston Hall was built in the late nineteenth century by the local Doctor and property speculator Robert Ottiwell Gifford Bennett MD (1834 – 1902).
The once magnificent hall fell into a state of neglect and disrepair, being badly damaged by fire in the mid 1980’s. Our aim is to lovingly restore Bennetston Hall, bringing it back to its former glory.
Ultimately, it will be the home of Chimp Management Ltd and our Headquarters where we will routinely deliver a wide selection of conferences and workshops, which will be open to the general public, with rooms and facilities available for community groups.
The Coach House, which nestles quietly behind Bennetston Hall is now in the final stages of restoration. It has been designed to be used as a ‘retreat’ to learn about the human mind as well as helping people to understand themselves better.
The secluded dwelling hosts 8-ensuite bedrooms, it caters for disabled guests and has ample parking. It also hosts a large therapy room with views overlooking the Peak District. We look forward to sharing details of our forthcoming events aimed at helping individuals and small groups at The Coach House.
