UK’s first private house hotel gears up for March debut

Foxhill Manor, the Grade-II listed Cotswolds manor house on the Farncombe Estate, will open as an eight-bedroom private house hotel on March 10th 2015, the first of its kind in the UK.

The new establishment dates back to 1909 and will book out nights per room or offer exclusive hire of the whole house for one party. The guests will have access to a butler and their own personal chef, who will prepare and cook any particular dish that is requested.

There is also a large drawing room, dining room and media room for guests to enjoy at their leisure.

Farncombe Estate is a privately owned land, currently home to Dormy House Hotel and now Foxhill Manor. Dormy House reopened in September 2013 following a multi-million pound renovation.

Chris Ward, commercial director at Farncombe says “The opening of Foxhill Manor in this capacity is another significant milestone for Farncombe. For generations the manor house has been a family home and it was important for us, and the owning family, that the renovation works created a sophisticated and elegant space but with the opportunity to create an atmosphere that is both relaxing and homely. We want Foxhill Manor to be a very private place where guests feel they can unwind and not worry about set dining times.” He adds “At Farncombe we pride ourselves on our staff and the service they deliver. The vital ingredient is character and this will be particularly key at Foxhill Manor”.
