Jonas Clarke purchased the land in which Noblethorpe Hall was built in approximately 1792. His second son Robert Couldwell Clarke inherited the land and gained considerable wealth through coal mining. During his family's ownership Noblethorpe Estate was constructed. The current owners have maintained and improved the property over a number of years in particular with a full roof refurbishment, the lower floor has also been developed into creating superb family space.

The principal rooms all have tall double windows, most of which have original workings and shutters and there are some delightful and highly ornate plaster moldings throughout the home.
