Hampton Manor is family-run with just 15 individually designed bedrooms and suites. Hampton Manor is home to a team whose innovative approach to hospitality, cooking and design has elevated this Neo-Tudor Gothic mansion into the Twenty-First Century. Derrick and Janet Hill invested in the property and supported the entire refurbishment in 2008. Husband and wife team, James and Fjona Hill who run the hotel, have drawn on their surroundings to create a unique environment. The property, built in 1855, had fallen into decline when Fjona and James embarked on an extensive 18 month restoration project. Hampton Manor is ideal for beautiful walks across its 45 acres of gardens. James manages a young, passionate team of locals.
