Ten individually designed bedrooms, combining a luxurious and homey atmosphere with genuine heritage features.
The original house was built in 1692, with the front drawing room, Tea room and 6 of the current bedrooms added around 1810. For a full history of the house see History.
Each family who has lived in Horetown has adapted the house to suit their needs, and we are no different. We have restored the bedrooms to the 1810 layout with original plaster work and windows intact. The house has a number of distinct period features, from Palladian pillars to curved walls and ceiling lights, a grand main staircase and a servants stairs to the upper floor.
Each bedroom is furnished to a high standard with antiques and period style decor. Our beds are complete with deep sprung mattresses, feather pillows and pocket filled, down duvets. Every room is en suite with a shower and/or bath and cosmetics from The Handmade Soap company. We provide Wifi throughout the house and offer a full TV service in the bar up until we ring the dinner bell-then its off with the TV and on with the party!
