A Grade II-listed 19th-century manor house in the UK is due to emerge from a £4 million restoration as a 50-room boutique hotel this October. Wood Norton Hall in the Vale of Evesham, in the English county of Worcestershire, last operated as a hotel in 2009, with 20 guest rooms, but had fallen into disrepair before it was acquired by a British investor at the beginning of the year. A further 30 rooms have been created at the property in the former stables and coach house. The building that once housed the estate’s blacksmith is now the hotel’s business centre. The hotel will be managed by Bespoke Hotels.
