News Release - Issued by Hornington Manor

Yorkshires Best Kept Secret

Having opened in April 2013, Hornington Manor was built in 1770 and is set in 300 acres of peaceful North Yorkshire countryside. The house is located in the historic village of Bolton Percy close to the city of York. The 17th Century Manor farm house and associated buildings have been lovingly restored to their former glory to provide luxury self-catering accommodation. The Manor is set on the working farm of Harrison Spinks, luxury bed manufacturer, and offers a total of 16 bedrooms split over four areas of the house including the Hornington Lodge, Manor House, West Wing and the Servants Quarter.

The Resurrection
The Grade II listed property has been nurtured back to the glory of its former years. The farm has continued to be a working farm through centuries of wars, peace, feats and famines and during our renovation the very essence of the building began to emerge and was encouraged back to life. The beautiful details of Georgian and Victorian architecture present themselves in every corner of every room as we gently peeled back and restored the history of the building. Carbon dated beams were uncovered in the Manor itself which pre-date 1752 and could well have come from the original medieval manor in a settlement by the river.
Enormous care and attention to every detail has been taken in this exciting and wonderful renovation: working closely with historians, architects, archaeologists and trained craftsmen. The results are homage to the house itself and an extension to the life of one of England's treasured pieces of history.

The Manor
Ideal for group bookings, family parties and more recently wedding receptions, Hornington Manor offers a variety of entertaining spaces, manicured gardens and countryside to host your perfect event. The farm is adjacent to open countryside playing host to a multitude of diversity including rare bird species and wildlife. Together with Hornington’s own flock of sheep, this environment provides a tranquil and relaxing setting for any luxury break.

Hornington Wedding FairHornington Manor is opening the doors to their first ever wedding fair to showcase their brand new dressed Hornington Barn. Hornington Manor offers couples a ‘blank canvas’ that allows them to create their own bespoke celebration.
This is the first time Hornington has opened itself up to public on a grand scale, Hornington may no longer be Yorkshire’s best kept secret for long!
