Marske Hall is a 17th century former mansion house with Grade 1 building status.

Marske Hall was built in 1625 as a residence for William Pennyman Esquire.

In 1755 it was acquired by the Dundas family, becoming the home of the Marquis of Zetland.

Lord Zetland donated it to the Leonard Cheshire Foundation in 1961 following a number of years abandoned.

Charles Dickens visited Marske to see the three unusual stone turrets.
