History Lords of the Manor has a rich and varied history. Dating to 1649, the venue has been transformed into the grand establishment that we see today. The estate has remained a privately owned residence throughout its history, occupied by the Slaughter family till the nineteenth century, then passed to the Witts family, who were the first Lords of Upper Slaughter. Throughout the Second World War, the property was occupied by the Army, which led to a small amount of damage. In 1972, it was transformed into a privately owned hotel still holding its original Tudor and Stuart features that gives it unique character.
