The Manor House Hotel is situated in the picturesque 'crossroad' village of Moreton-in-Marsh, right in the heart of the Cotswolds. With its wide street, the village itself is a charming and delightful example of traditional Cotswold architecture and layout, and it sits on the crossroads of the great Fosse Way - the famously straight Roman road that still underlies the present surface to this day. Moreton-in-Marsh can boast almost 2000 years of history, and its hostelries were primarily used as places for travellers to rest and coachmen to change their horses during long journeys north or south.
The Manor House Hotel is a Tudor building dated 1545, and currently holds a Grade II listing. Sitting proudly beside the village's wide and beautiful High Street, the hotel presents an impressive frontage, further embellished by the extensive exterior.
King Henry VIII reportedly granted the Manor of Moreton to the Dean and Chapter of Westminster during the early 16th century. Skip on a bit to the 20th century, and Lady Elizabeth Bowes Lyon is known to have stayed in the hotel during the 2nd World War.
The Manor House forms part of the Cotswolds Inns and Hotels Group, who also own and administer several other historic hotels and venues across the region, including The Swan Hotel, The Bear of Rodborough, and The Bay Tree Hotel
