ⓘ Undershaw

Undershaw is a former residence of the author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the creator of Sherlock Holmes.

The house was built for Doyle at his order to accommodate his wifes health requirements, and where he lived with his family from 1897 to 1907.

Undershaw is where Doyle wrote many of his works, including the hound of the Baskervilles.

For decades after Doyle sold the house, Undershaw served as a hotel, which was closed in 2004. The property has been vacant since then. In 2014, the house land were purchased by the DFN charitable Foundation on the steps of the school, the school for children with special needs.
