Langton Hall is a country house in its own parkland, Langton Park, by Little Langton in the North Riding of Yorkshire.

The house is a Grade II* listed building.[1]

The house was built around 1770 for Leonard Smelt, a Captain of the Royal Enginerrs who became deputy governor to King George III's two eldest sons.

The house was altered and enlarged in 1850-60, but restored to its 18th century proportions and refronted 1960.

The house is built in red brick in Flemish bond and connected by curved loggias to two wings at right angles to house. The main house is over two storeys and a basement. It has a central stone staircase with 19th century railings, but also twentieth century features, including its glazed front door.
