Littlecote House Hotel by Warner Leisure Hotels

Whether you are looking for great nights out, days to remember or just a well-earned rest – then a Warners Leisure Hotel is just waiting to welcome you.

Littlecote House Hotel - east entrance to old house and historic rooms My annual pilgrimage to a Warner Leisure Hotel this year was to the stately home of Littlecote House Hotel near Hungerford, an imposing Elizabethan House set in the rolling hills on the Wiltshire/Berkshire border.

Escape and explore, forget your worries and for a few days, enjoy the fun and activities or just sit back and relax in the comfortable surroundings that Warner Leisure Hotels provide.

Feel safe and secure as Warner Leisure Hotels still have Covid safety very much in mind. All staff wear masks and screens are strategically placed around the reception, restaurant and bar areas, also lots and lots of hand sanitizers are to be found around the building for your safety.

Whether you stay in a Standard room or a Signature room, the choice is yours, but which ever you choose, the room will be clean and very comfortable. Why not book a deluxe room in Littlecote Manor House in the historical, beautiful rooms. Try the Queen Elizabeth 1 room with its roll top bath and a sitting room with a glorious view over the grounds, and the bedroom is something special.

Old Hall of Littlecote House Hotel Littlecote House Hotel is one of Warner’s most iconic buildings. This stately home  goes back to the 1250s. The medieval manor was built by the de Calstone family, and is famous for many historic events.

The Manor House boasts The Great Hall, which is stunning and brimming with history. Original flagstones, dating back to 1589, invite you to walk and wonder at who could have been entertained here. Elizabeth 1, William of Orange and of course Henry V111 who wooed Jane Seymore in this impressive room. 

Go on to the Chinese Drawing Room. The room gets its name from the four beautiful hand-painted Chinese panels. This room leads to the Orangery and the Library. This room is steeped in history and a commemorating display tells the story of how this room was used by Colonel Bob Sink, Commander in Chief of the 506 PIR part of the 101st Airborne American paratroopers. Don’t miss the haunted landing and bedroom where there is said to be a ghost that haunts the landing and the crying of a lost child spooky!!!

Littlecote House Hotel Littlecote House is disabled friendly, and the staff are very helpful. On arrival, drive down to the reception area to unload your cases, then take your car to the car park where there are lots of parking spaces. If you need a porter to take you to your room, ask at reception, the porters are very helpful and obliging.

Access to all rooms can be made on the flat corridors or by a lift that takes you to 3 other floors. If you need to hire a wheelchair, contact the mobility store at Wroughton, and they will deliver a wheelchair for the duration of your stay at varying costs.

The restaurant, bar and main entertainment areas are all conveniently placed and are a great place to meet people and enjoy the variety of entertainment that the hard-working staff provide. Top entertainers are booked for Warner Leisure Hotels, so look out for the stars coming to the venues, go on to the Warners website

Roman Villa mosaic The grounds at Littlecote House Hotel are stunning with a kitchen garden, the main formal garden, the tennis court and the river flowing through the grounds give a peaceful, calming effect as you stroll through this lovely space.

In the grounds can be found the largest and most complete Roman Villa on display in Britain. It lies in the parkland of Littlecote House. It is a short walk from the Manor House, and it has the world-famous Orpheus mosaic preserved there. For any history buffs, Littlecote House is a must.

Roman Villa mosaic Many people are regulars to Warner Leisure Hotels, returning to different hotels around the country on a monthly basis.  This is their sanctuary to get away and be spoilt for a weekend or mid-week break. Warner Leisure Hotels are like elastic, they keep pulling you back for more.

What do you want for a short break? A warm-welcome, lovely rooms, with comfortable beds, good food and good entertainment, wide-open spaces, adult only hotel? And a Ghost or two!!  All this can be found at Littlecote House Hotel.
