New Arrivals

In Blog by karentanner / October 18, 2013 / 0 Comments

A hive of activity has been taking place at The Wood Norton, which is located just 2 miles from our office, so we are keeping a very close eye on their long awaited new function room, The Orangery. This room will be able to seat 120 people theatre style and 80 cabaret style and offers stunning views over the formal gardens, so lots of natural daylight but just in case, they do have black out facilities.

The Wood Norton is located in the heart of the Midlands, just 15 minutes drive from J6 of the M5 and ideally located from the M42 in Worcestershire.

The newly refurbished Dormy House in the Cotswolds is now open for business and it’s looking very stylish, so no wonder its one of the Cotswold’s best-loved luxury hotels. We’ve also got the Spa to look forward to, which opens its doors in late January 2014. The hotel is part of the Farncombe Estate, some 400 acres in total so its good to know that if you need meeting space, it has a big brother – Farncombe Conference Centre.

This is an award winning, meeting, training and team building venue with 9 meeting rooms to choose from, all with natural daylight. Dormy House also has a little sister – Foxhill Manor – and again we watch with interest as the venue is currently being transformed into a luxurious 8 bedroom Exclusive Use venue, complete with its own lounge, bar, dining room, media room and meeting/function room for up to 80 guests. Available from Spring 2014.

If you are interested in the above properties and wish to make an enquiry, please let us know.
