Beginning life in 1875 as a traditional country cottage known then as 'Goldings', the original structure was enlarged to twenty times its original size in 1881 by owner Evelyn Heseltine. Upon his retirement from the army, the Heseltine residence became the centre of village life as a gathering for all types of social or community groups, in a room now known as the Golding Suite.

After passing to the Heseltines' son-in-law, Brigadier General De Rougemont, and subsequently to the Hilton family (who still own the property today) in 1968, the house was converted into the luxury hotel we see today. Despite a devastating fire back in 2001 that destroyed 90% of the building, the historic parts of the hotel have been restored and stand as fitting testament to the long and well-established history of De Rougemont Manor.


The manor itself has a variety of versatile lounges and suites that present a generous space for any wedding celebration, banquet, buffet or barbecue. Each room contains a little piece of individual history and in certain cases (Golding, Champers Suites) benefit from their own private bars and dance floors.

  • Georgina - July 2019

    I got married here on the 26th July 2019. Naomi my wedding coordinator was fantastic and extremely helpful every step of the way. Everything went so smoothly on our big day, the 4 course meal was delicious and so was the evening buffet. the honeymoon suite we had was massive also and the bed was so comfy, the only downside to the room was no air conditioning but that isn't the end of the world. My husband and I are already planning to stay again! Thank you to all the staff for all your help over the 2 nights I stayed with you. You were all amazing xx

  • Katie - July 2018

    We can not thank you and the team enough! Everything we brought for example the maps, pictures, little bits were how we imagined and better, the layout of every room was perfect. We both feel you went over and above your jobs to make our day extra special. From the minute we arrived we felt truly looked after and spoilt what a brilliant venue and fantastic staff you have. The food was spot on, considering we were significantly late to the sit down breakfast due to photos the chefs did a great job of the whole thing The night was also great and the bridal suite was just the icing on top of the cake, stunning. The next morning breakfast was also way above expectations was perfect from the pastry’s to the full English. Overall we would like to say a MASSIVE thank you to yourself and your team what an amazing day you gave us
