Stanford Hall is a stately home in Nottinghamshiremarker, Englandmarker, in Stanford on Soarmarker just north of Loughboroughmarker.

Stanford Hall was built between 1771 and 1774 for Charles Vere Dashwood. From the late 19th century it was owned by the Ratcliffe family. In 1928 Sir Julien Cahn purchased the Hall for £70,000 (equivalent to £3,022,919 in 2007). Here Cahn built himself a cricket pitch, nine-hole golf course, bowling green and a large trout lake. On Cahn's death in 1944 it was purchased for £54,000 by the Co-operative Union who used it to house its Co-operative Collegemarker. The Co-operative College relocated to Holyoake House in Manchester in 2001.

Within the grounds are a Sea Lion pool and a Lido.

Property tycoon Chek Whyte plans to build a £60m retirement village within the halls grounds.

In March 2009, the grounds hosted the English schools cross country championships.
