Whatley Manor – a beautifully restored Cotswold manor house hotel and spa that draws on creative talent from around the world to offer a supremely enjoyable and civilised experience. It’s a passion for quality and excellence that Whatley Manor offers, and a philosophy for a way of doing things that is hard to find in the modern world.
Whatley Manor was originally built in the 19th century and formed part of an estate including the farm and was called Twatley Manor. Rear Admiral Reginald Neeld, his wife Beatrix and daughter lived in the house in the period 1899-1924. The estate was bought in 1925 by H.C. Cox, a Canadian, deputy master of the Beaufort Hunt who used the estate to hunt added more land to it. Cox altered the inside farmhouse, added a west wing now called the Tudor wing and greatly extended the stable courtyard and built the coach house. He also laid out ornamental gardens and a small park. In 1937 it was sold to Priscilla Coriat and her husband who owned it until 1957. In 1961 the estate was divided by R.J. Rennie. In 1987 Whatley Manor became a hotel for the first time.
During this time Marco and Alix Landolt stayed at Whatley Manor whilst visiting their son Christian who was competing at The Badminton Horse Trials. The beauty of this place inspired them and when Whatley Manor came up for sale in 2000 they acquired it, restored it painstakingly and brought it back to its former glory. The manor house is a Grade 2 listed building. 12 acres of land has been transformed into 26 distinctive gardens, many of them based on the original 1920’s plans.
The vision was to create a hotel that becomes a destination in its own right, where the quality of accommodation, facilities, and service add up to an experience that is supremely relaxing and enjoyable and where quality and attention to detail remain key.
Whatley Manor is a new kind of hotel, a place exquisitely calculated to restore both mind and body to a new harmony. It opened its doors on 1st July 2003 and has become the place grown out of a passion for guests to relax.

The Ned London – When Nick Jones, the founder of Soho House & Co, first saw the City’s disused Midland Bank building in 2012, he fell in love. ‘The property had been empty for nearly eight years but there was something about it – the details and scale of it – that just floored me,’ Jones explains. The moment he left, he called Ron Burkle, Soho House chairman and investor. ‘Ron came to view the building and straight away we began to imagine how the project would take form,’ says Jones. Burkle knew a project of this size would require the collaboration of many skills, and so introduced Jones to Andrew Zobler, the CEO of New York’s Sydell Group. ‘The Ned was a much bigger project than either of us had undertaken before,’ says Zobler, ‘so it made sense for us to partner on it.’
So, what do Jones and Zobler like most about The Ned? For both, the clincher has to be the roof. ‘Sitting by the pool on the rooftop of a 100-year-old building, looking out over St Paul’s Cathedral and beyond – it doesn’t get any better than that,’ says Zobler.
