Back in 2003 we opened Rushton Hall, our very first English country hotel and we're proud to have recently open our second, Barton Hall
Rushton Hall is an award winning 16th century hotel & spa set in 25 acres of inspirational grounds.
Rushton Hall, a Grade 1 Listed stately home was purchased in 2003, having formally been used as a school. After lengthy negotiations with English Heritage and Local Authorities, permission was finally granted to convert the neglected estate into a hotel. The Hazelton Group restored the building over a three year period, the hotel was formally opened by The Duke of Gloucester in 2006.
The hotel consists of 46 bedrooms and a new state-of-the-artspa which opened in May 2008. In addition to its Michelin recommendationof twoAARosettes, In 2009 Rushton Hall was voted Most Excellent Hotel Meeting Venue by Conde NastJohansen. In December of the same year,the hotel was awarded Best Building Restoration in England by the CPRE. More recently, Rushton has collected a host of prestigious awards including 4 AA red stars foritsaccommodation and 3 rosettes forits restaurant, making it the AA'shighest rated in Northamptonshire .
A magnificent building, Rushton Hall is one of the very rare Grade 1 Listed hotels in the UK. It is run by Tom Hazelton's wife, Valerie, who has been the driving force behind every facet of the restoration, interior design and management of the hotel.
We have recently installed a state of the art biomass renewable heating system for the entire estate, allowing us to retire our current and rather inefficient oil fired central heating. This will reduce the carbon footprint of the heating side of the hotel by 95% as the biomass only uses full renewable wood chip.
Welcome to Barton Hall, the latest addition to our hotel, restaurant, spa and venue portfolio.
A rather grand, elegant manor house situated within acres of peaceful landscaped gardens, Barton Hall is our latest hotel. Opened in 2013 it won an Angel Award from English Heritage for our considered restoration of the manor house and estate buildings, the award was sponsored by Andrew Lloyd Webber.
In contrast to Rushton Hall, the interiors are contemporary yet still manage to honour the building's integrity, with a vibrant bistro serving modern English food, a number of exceptionally stylish conference rooms and 29 elegant bedrooms. Barton Hall also offers a hidden gem, the Grade II listed Orangery sits gracefully in the hotel's gardens and is the perfect venue for a whole host of cosy events including weddings, launches and private parties. whilst our new function room caters for grander events seating 180 people banquet or 250 theatre style. The restaurant has recently gained 2 rosettes.
