A former Victorian mill owner and philanthropist’s residence in the Huddersfield village of Lindley has undergone a £4.5m investment to transform a Grade II listed Georgian period property, known as Manor House, into a boutique restaurant with rooms.
Manor House has undergone a radical transformation, restoring the building to now include 11 individually designed bedrooms, two restaurants and three bars. A roof terrace bar has also been created, allowing for views of neighbouring St. Stephens Church.
The opening of Manor House sees 30 jobs being created, with a further 20 recruits expected to join the business by the end of the year. Already the venue has attracted high profile staff, many with backgrounds in luxury hotels across the UK.
Expected to be one of the leading boutique events venues in the north of England, multiple weddings and events for 2018 and beyond have been booked months in advance of the Manor House’s official opening.
Manor House recently opened its Clock Tower Lounge, a nod to the local landmark commissioned by Manor House’s former owner James Nield Sykes, to a welcome reception from local residents. The Lantern Room restaurant and rooms open from the beginning of May and the Coach House, which will host weddings and events, will be fully operational from June.
Mark Ayre, General Manager at Manor House commented:
“It is a pleasure to open our doors to such a wonderful reception from the local community who have been exceptionally patient and supportive during the renovations. We are extremely proud of what has been created at the Manor House and with such a unique offering, we expect to welcome visitors from far and wide to the area.”
