Following a long and complicated renovation and restoration project, which lasted throughout 2015, Catthorpe Manor Estate, Country House Hotel & The Linden Tree Restaurant are now Open For Business!

If you haven’t visited Catthorpe Manor Estate for a while you may not recognise it now! During 2015 the Edwardian manor house at Catthorpe was completely transformed and following an extensive renovation and several set-backs, including the discovery of asbestos, which had to be removed before the project could move forward, the venue re-opened on the 8th February 2016 as a beautiful country house hotel, complete with restaurant.The Manor and the Banqueting Suite, (two large rooms and a spacious bar situated within the old coach house), have hosted wedding receptions since the mid-1970’s, when there were few establishments in the Rugby area offering such a service, and was always a popular choice due to the attractive buildings and beautiful grounds. In 2011 The Banqueting Suite and Bar were completely renovated and the business diversified to offer civil ceremonies,  a programme of special events and a range of conference rooms. In 2014 Head Chef, James Craggs, was appointed who introduced exciting new menus and brought in many excellent local suppliers. With exquisite food on offer, spacious meetings and weddings facilities and light airy reception rooms, the venue had almost everything. However, accommodation was always lacking. But no longer…                

Catthorpe Manor Estate now offers 20 beautiful bedrooms and has grown from its roots as, primarily, an events venue into a bijou country house hotel, along with a brand new restaurant open to residents and non-residents alike. The Linden Tree Restaurant is filled with abundant natural light during the day and overlooks the gardens and countryside beyond, whilst in the evening crystal chandeliers and soft warm colours combine to create an elegant yet comfortable environment in which to dine.  Focusing on serving delicious food from local suppliers and using fresh seasonal ingredients, the restaurant is open for Sunday Lunch, Afternoon Tea (from Easter onwards) and A La Carte Dining, whilst light bites and coffee can be enjoyed in the adjacent Drawing Room. The manor also offers two gorgeous spaces for private dining, meetings and civil ceremonies; The Garden Room, which features double doors leading out into the lovely gardens and The Old Library.In addition to the weddings, meetings, accommodation and restaurant, Catthorpe Manor Estate also hosts a large number of events throughout the year and 2016’s line-up is the most exciting one yet. From murder mystery dinners to David Bowie tribute and wild-food foraging to wedding fairs, there’s something for all tastes this year at Catthorpe Manor Estate.
