Historic Hotel
Habitation around the area goes as far back as 2,000 years. The property was initially owned by The Shirleys, one of Warwickshire's oldest families that can be traced back over a thousand years. Throughout the years, the old manor house was demolished and replaced by smaller houses from salvaged materials. In 1935, the mansion became a nursing home and a prisoner's camp during World War II, and in 1983 restoration work began in order to be turned into a luxury hotel.
