Found nestled into the patchwork countryside between Newbury and Hungerford, just off the A4 and in the heart of the North Wessex Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this 19th century Georgian manor house offers the perfect backdrop for any wedding day.

Built between 1815 and 1825 by Anthony Bushby Bacon, this 19th century manor house was once inhabited by the Shelley Family, as Lady Shelley, mother of famous poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, purchased the house in 1844.

Today the grade II-listed hotel is owned by the prestigious Mercure hotel chain, and managed by Jupiter Hotels. In 2014 the building underwent a significant renovation, perfectly fusing its traditional roots with the cutting-edge.


Restored sensitively to suit the building's period features, the hotel makes for plenty of grand photographic opportunities, with a portrait-adorned sweeping staircase and a grand fireplace dominating the lounge.

The hotel's primary dedicated events suite, this spacious and state of the art space features large floor to ceiling windows, and a lovely circular extension is the feature of the room, ideal for the top table and as the main seating for the ceremony.

Ceremony Capacity - 100 guests
Reception Capacity - 120 guests
