The larder and store room is one of 21 rooms in the dolls' house Pendle Hall. It was designed and decorated by Felicity Clemons over a forty year period, and each piece of furniture and fixture was handmade by her. She used books and magazines for inspiration, and to achieve a high level of accuracy in the design and execution of each item.

It is an irregular shaped room in the basement of the house, used to store foodstuffs and other similar items for use in the house.

Along the back wall are a long bench and four long shelves, which contain a number of jars and bottles. In one corner is a wooden step ladder, used to reach the upper shelves. Below the bench are larger containers, and a pile of sacks sit in one corner. Two strings of onions hang above the ladder.

Next to this is a larder, which is partitioned off with an open wooden wall, covered in metal mesh, which has a door in the centre. Inside, various meats are hanging from the ceiling on metal hooks, or sitting on a long white wooden bench, which has a stool on one side. Outside the larder is a wooden desk and chair, with a woven seat, on which sits a stock book. Above the desk hangs a calendar.

Due to the sunken staircase above it, the room has an irregular shaped ceiling. The floor and walls have the appearance of stone blocks.
