Hogarths Stone Manor, an impressive Tudor-style hotel near Kidderminster, has undergone a major refurbishment, with a fresh palette of contemporary green, charcoal and aubergine across its 56 bedrooms and suites. As part of the process, the property’s public rooms have been renamed after animal habitats and areas of the home, which have been carefully chosen to promote a spirit of rest and relaxation.
In addition to the new colour scheme, guests can enjoy a range of little luxuries including crisp Egyptian cotton linen, fluffy robes and L’Occitane toiletries from France. Bathrooms also have steam-free mirrors, heated floors and rain showers.
In addition, The Manor’s Pump Room, a covered outdoor event space that is licensed for civil wedding ceremonies has undergone a facelift, with a new orchard planted nearby. A manicured ornamental garden was also created last year. Fruit trees have been planted around the large walled area, which features a central water fountain, herb collection and several greenhouses. The fruit, herbs and tomatoes grown are used by the hotel’s chefs in their seasonal menus.
There is a new children’s play area, encouraging youngsters to go outside and explore the grounds, while a circle of trees has a range of insect, butterfly and hedgehog houses to enable little ones to discover more about wildlife.
