This transformation has been part of a multi-million-pound investment programme following Walwick Estate Group’s takeover in 2020, having acquired the property from the Blackett family.

In addition to the tasteful renovation of the Great Hall; a stunning new airy bar with mezzanine has been created, as well as upgrades to The Cloisters Restaurant and Bar and state-of-the-art kitchen.
