History

Kitley House is believed to have been built by Thomas Pollexfen (pronounced Poulston) in the early Tudor period, during the reign of Henry VII.

It was a family home, passing through the hands of multiple owners, until as recently as 20 years ago, and hosted a number of famous guests throughout the centuries. These included Sir Joshua Reynolds, Samuel Johnson, William Butley Yeats, and Susan Pollexfen (author of the poem "The Comic Adventures of Old Mother Hubbard and Her Dog").

Although still largely Tudor in appearance from the outside, the interior of Kitley House was greatly altered during the Georgian period by its then-owner, George Stanley Repton, who brought it up to date with Georgian tastes and who also expanded the house by adding extra wings.

Reviews

  • Kirsty

    We have just had our wedding reception at the beautiful Kitley House. Our rooms were amazing. On Friday night I stayed in the Winston suite and on our wedding night (the Saturday) in the bridal suite. Both rooms were of an exceptionally high standard and the beds were so comfortable. Our wedding day was exactly as we dreamed - perfect from start to finish.

Thank you so much for making it a perfect day.

    From the moment we first contacted Kitley House Hotel, all the staff that we came into contact with seemed to share our enthusiasm for our special day. Nothing was too much trouble at all stages of planning the event, obviously very experienced, and they gently guided us through the planning and reminded us of the usual protocols to be observed. Our guests were very impressed with the fact the we had exclusive use of the hotel and the food was both delicious and plentiful for both the sit-down meal and the evening buffet.
