Revamp sees building open doors

Evesham Editorial 16th May, 2014 Updated: 20th Oct, 2016

A GRADE II listed building in the Vale is available to hire for the first time in more than 100 years.

Foxhill Manor, an eight-bedroomed home near Broadway which also comprises a ballroom, media room and grand staircase,

is set to re-open its doors following a £2.2million revamp.

The picturesque building was built in 1909 and is set at the heart of the private 400-acre Farncombe Estate with long views over Broadway and the Vale of Evesham.

It opens once again later this month as a glamorous exclusive venue for weddings, house parties and top-notch events.

The revamp makes is the third major investment in a year from the Farncombe team who also created multi-million pound improvements to the nearby Dormy House Hotel and House Spa last year.

Cotswold stone mullions, fireplaces and other original features have been preserved while interiors have been given a thoroughly modern make-over by English design firm Trevillion Interiors.

Chris Wood, commercial director of Farncombe Estate said: “We felt there was a gap in the market for an intimate and traditional venue, reworked to a very high spec.”

“A great deal of care has gone into ensuring the house remains true to its heritage while creating an exceptional space for events.

“The setting of Foxhill Manor and range of activities available – from shooting, archery and cycling on the Estate and golf at the Broadway Golf Club next door – make it perfect for house parties and board meetings.

“And without question, it will become the most sought-after wedding venue in the Cotswolds.”

Foxhill Manor will be operated by the experienced hospitality team at Dormy House alongside a dedicated house butler. The hotel’s new head chef Jon Ingram will oversee the menus.
