Willot Hall is a country house in the parish of Prestbury, some 4.5 km to the east of Wilmslow, Cheshire, England. It originated as a medieval hall house in the later part of the 15th century.[1][2] This was encased in stone in the 17th century. Later in the century a service wing was added. The house was restored and extended between 1933 and 1939, moving the entrance and reopening the great hall to the roof.[1] It is constructed partly in buff sandstone rubble and partly in brick, with Kerridge stone slate roofs. It is in 2½ storeys, with a four-bay entrance front, the left bay being larger than the others. The left bay contains mullioned windows and is gabled. The other bays contain a doorway, smaller mullioned windows, and have gabled dormers. The house is designated by English Heritage as a Grade II* listed building.[2]
