Foxhill Manor – Information
Foxhill Manor is a magnificent Arts and Crafts style manor house, nestled in the heart of beautiful Cotswold countryside just a short distance from the idyllic village of Broadway, widely renowned for being one of the most beautiful villages in the Cotswolds. Foxhill Manor stands in delightful private grounds within the 400 acre Farncombe Estate, with an impressive sweeping driveway with central fountain, and beautiful gardens including a sunset terrace with stunning panoramic views over the Vale of Evesham.
Built in 1909, Foxhill Manor has a wonderful layout, designed by noted architect Joseph Lancaster Ball to capture all-day sunlight with four “wings” around a central body. The house was for many years a family home to the WW2 hero Henry Maudslay, before the current owners acquired the estate in 1970.
In recent years a multi-million pound restoration has returned Foxhill Manor to its former glory, with meticulous attention to detail in preserving and restoring the Cotswold stone mullions, fireplaces and the original grand staircase. The results are simply stunning, a wonderful blend of old and new, with stylish and elegant interiors and fabulous bedroom suites making this one of the Cotswolds’ most luxurious private residences.
Fully staffed and catered as standard, stays at Foxhill Manor are a truly relaxing and indulgent experience. Whether you are looking for a tranquil country break with your nearest and dearest, or to throw the party of a lifetime, you can be sure the superb team at Foxhill Manor will make your stay absolutely perfect. Of course all stays are entirely bespoke, created specifically for you to suit your exact tastes and requirements.
Enjoy superb cuisine created just for you in the lavish Dining Room, a beautiful room seating up to 16 guests with rich blue and black decor and a dramatic bespoke crystal chandelier. The stunning Cotswold stone fireplace creates a wonderful atmosphere for intimate dinners and late night soirees with the flickering of a real log fire, and there are beautiful far reaching views through the Cotswold stone mullioned windows. There is also a bar available, perfect for drinks parties and receptions.
Should you require more space, the beautiful Ballroom can seat up to 80 guests for wedding receptions, gala dinners, large celebrations or corporate events. This magnificent room is flooded with natural light thanks to two large sky lights, with triple aspect windows giving amazing far reaching views. Two spectacular chandeliers illuminate the room as darkness falls, with the beautiful large feature fireplace creating an intimate feel for smaller house parties. The wooden floors are perfect for dancing the night away to a live band or DJ, without fear of disturbing the neighbours. Both the Ballroom and Drawing Room are available for corporate meetings or presentations, and both rooms hold a civil ceremony licence. Should you require additional accommodation for your guests, there are many options available nearby.
The elegant Drawing Room is the heart of the home, beautifully decorated in soft creams, greys and greens, with vibrant splashes of orange and purple, it forms a wonderfully relaxing space to enjoy time with your guests. Sumptuous sofas, bespoke pieces of furniture and beautiful artwork especially commissioned for the Manor create a stylish and luxurious feel, and provide the perfect place to curl up by the fire after crisp walks through the estate, if you can drag your eyes away from the dramatic views through the vast Cotswold stone mullioned windows.
