Hotel & Accommodation

A former hunting lodge, The Manor House Hotel is steeped in history, not least of all because it is said to have played host to Henry VIII. Today the picturesque building has kept its legacy intact having preserved its stone fireplaces and wooden floors, embraced a heritage colour palette and incorporated antique furnishings throughout.

The Beehive Lounge – thus named for retaining its original historic fireplace and beehive oven is ideal for an aperitif or after dinner drinks and sits alongside the conservatory based restaurant which offers a European fusion menu. However if you are looking for something a little more casual, the Stables Bar in the courtyard overlooking the gardens offers drinks, al fresco dining and a racing theme whereby jockeys silks and memorabilia adorn the walls
