Cora: "We were just saying how charming this room is now."
Violet: "It always seemed rather dark when my mother-in-law lived here. But then she made everything rather dark."
— Cora and Violet greeting Matthew[src]

Crawley House is a house in Downton, Yorkshire, in which Matthew Crawley and his mother Isobel went to live after the former's announcement as the heir to the Earl of Grantham's estate following the deaths of Patrick Crawley and his father James aboard the RMS Titanic. Crawley House had been uninhabited prior to their arrival, since the death of Violet's mother-in-law.[1] Matthew moves out of Crawley House and goes to live permanently at Downton Abbey in Series 3, after marrying Lady Mary Crawley. In the 2015 Christmas Special, Lord Merton moves into Crawley House when he becomes engaged to Isobel, leaving his estate Cavenham Park to his son Larry and daughter-in-law Amelia.

It is located by a public square, opposite the local church and graveyard.
