Our latest wedding preview video is now online, captured for Stacey and Warren who got married back in July 2018 at the stunning setting of Ardencote Manor Hotel in Warwick.
This beautiful setting was originally built in 1863, as the dowry house for Mary the daughter of Thomas Phillips, a wool manufacturer from Manchester. During the late Victorian era, the Phillips family added extensive servants’ quarters and stables to the existing estate. At its peak the family employed 15 servants and livery staff, 25 farm labourers and 6 gardeners. All staff lived within the Ardencote and its estate.
After the 1st World War the Phillips family sold Ardencote to Mr. James Booth. Under Mr. Booth’s ownership Ardencote flourished; at this time the village of Claverdon was barely 50 houses and the entire community of the hamlets of Pinley and Lye Green would have all been employed by the estate. James Booth died in 1937 and his family decided to sell the property.
