Celebrating Twenty One Years of Whatley

Celebrating 21 Years of Whatley Manor

Join us as we commemorate Whatley Manor’s 21st anniversary with a series of extraordinary events and special guests that embody our commitment to sustainability and creativity.

Officially opening its doors on 1st July 2003, the property dates back to the 18th century, when it was a farmhouse on the Twatley Farm estate. The Landolt family have been custodians of Whatley Manor since 2000, when the hotel was completely restored and the gardens re-designed back to their original ‘Arts & Crafts’ style. A Spa was added along with a Stable Suite used for private events.

Kickstarting the Celebrations  At the start of August we are thrilled to welcome internationally renowned mural artist Matt Willey of ‘The Good of the Hive Project’. Matt will be creating a captivating bee mural, symbolizing the profound connection between people and the planet. The mural will be installed in the guest car park with the help of the local school and Guide group. Don’t miss this unique storytelling experience whether you are visiting the hotel, spa or restaurants.
