Holker Hall High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Holker Hall is a country house with a celebrated garden situated on the Cartmel Peninsula, which was historically part of the county of Lancashire, but is now part of the county of Cumbria, in England.Before the Dissolution of the Monasteries in 1536 the land on which Holker stands belonged to Cartmel Priory. When the land came up for sale it was acquired by the Preston family, who were established local landowners. Since then it has passed from the Prestons to the Lowthers and then the Cavendishes by inheritance, but it has never been sold.
