A little bit of History

Situated in the quaint town of Dalton in Furness, Chequers Hotel occupies the site of the town's first free school founded in 1622. The remarkable building you see and stay in today was build in 1872 and went by the name Green School. Over time we have renovated areas of the hotel, building a restaurant, more rooms and created a chapel setting, enabling our guests to tie the knot in this beautiful and historic building.
