Darell Arms

Location: Framilode

Lower Framilode

Postcode: GL2 7LF

Sir William Lionel Darell, who died in 1883, was the Rector of Fretherne from 1844–78. The Darell Family lived in Fretherne House and had built up a sizeable estate. They even built a pub in the village and named it after the family!

The Darell Arms replaced the Passage House Inn, which stood on the same site.

The Darell Arms was constructed in mock tudor style with two ornate gabled ends.

Following the death of L. E. Darell in 1918 much of the family estate was sold off, but a small part was retained by Sir Lionel’s son, Sir Lionel E. H. M. Darell, who died in 1954.

The Darell Arms closed c.1990 and is now a private residence.
