Four-star Cheshire boutique celebrates 100th anniversary


A Cheshire-based four-star boutique hotel has recently celebrated 100 years since it was first converted into the building that stands today.

Inglewood Manor, a luxury boutique in 38 acres of gardens, was first bought by the Fox family in 1902 before being extended to its present size in 1915.

In November 1985, Inglewood Manor became a listed building and in 2003 the property was taken over by three businessmen, who converted the building into a hotel after an extensive refurbishment.

Despite the update, the original interiors from the Fox-family days still remain, including the carved oak panelling and floral and oak leaf ceiling.

To mark the milestone, Inglewood Manor welcomed several generations of the Fox family back to the hotel to celebrate.

The hotel has recently won a string of awards including a Certificate of Excellence Hall of Fame from TripAdvisor, and Inglewood Manor is currently the holder of Cheshire’s Small Hotel of the Year 2014 award.

Inglewood Manor General manager, Fiona Creed, said: “We were thrilled to welcome Margaret and her family back to Inglewood and delighted to be able to welcome them to their original family home.

“The team were intrigued to meet the family and all felt that they were taken back in time enjoying the historic heritage through photographs and hearing past stories.”
