About the Duchy
The Duchy of Lancaster is an ancient inheritance. The management of its historic assets is undertaken with the objective of providing a sustainable income to The Queen as Duke of Lancaster while preserving capital for future Dukes and conserving the land for tenants and visitors.
The Duchy of Lancaster owns 18,454 hectares of rural land in England and Wales, the majority of which is in Lancashire, Yorkshire, Cheshire, Staffordshire and Lincolnshire. Additionally, the Duchy has a significant commercial property portfolio which includes the Savoy precinct off the Strand in London as well as a portfolio of financial investments.
Scalby Lodge was the first of the Duchy of Lancaster’s holiday cottage developments. The aim is to provide high quality accommodation in areas of outstanding natural beauty on the Duchy estates. The latest addition to the portfolio is a stand-alone holiday cottage in the village of Dunsop Bridge on the Whitewell estate in the Trough of Bowland, Lancashire.
