Levens Hall circa 1880.

Levens Hall is a manor house in the county of Cumbria in northern England. The first house on the site was a pele tower built by the Redman family in around 1350. Much of the present building dates from the Elizabethan era, when the Bellingham family extended the house. They were responsible for the fine panelling and plasterwork in the main rooms. Further additions were made in the late 17th and early 19th centuries.

Levens Hall and the topiary in 1833 when the estate was the seat of the Hon. Colonel Fulke-Greville Howard.

Levens is now owned by the Bagot family and is open to the public. It has a celebrated topiary garden, which was started in 1694. There is also a deer park inhabited by fallow deer and goats.

Levens Hall is reportedly haunted, and people have claimed to have seen the ghost of a black dog who inhabits the stairs and an amicable lady in pink.
