Need to Know

Entrance Staircase

Spicer Manor’s centrepiece is a stunning curved oak bifurcated staircase with spectacular drop lighting.

A Chesterfield sofa and wing chairs offer seating for up to 11 guests in the grand hall, and there is a large fireplace with ornamental log burner.

During celebrations, this area provides another communal space, situated between the lounge bar, sitting room and kitchen.

The globe feature lighting in the hall provides an outstanding feature. Its cascade of 11 glass globes hangs to a drop of three metres from a large oval hand-forged ceiling plate. Burgundy silk braided cable was chosen to match the deep red of the walls in the hall and landings.

Bedrooms & Bathrooms

Each bedroom at Spicer Manor is tastefully decorated, and the soft Farrow and Ball and Little Greene colours provide a restful backdrop to a comfortable night’s sleep.

The bathrooms are as individual as the bedrooms, with Porcelanosa tiles throughout and high-quality fittings.

Most of the 15 bedrooms have king-size beds that can be turned into singles and there are four family rooms, one of which is accessible for people with limited mobility on the ground floor.

Lounges & Bar

For guests looking for a quiet, cosy place to relax, the sitting room offers a large stone fireplace, comfortable seating on extra-deep sofas for up to 16 people and a range of board games, with magnificent views across the Yorkshire countryside.

If you’re planning a special birthday party, the large lounge bar has everything you need. The room is lined with large sofas offering seating for 22 people, five coffee tables, a large 4K flat-screen TV and a spectacular marble-topped cocktail bar with two bar stools.

With its own wine fridge, and a range of glassware for gin, champagne, beer, wine and cocktails, this is the place to celebrate a birthday, anniversary or wedding. The coffee tables and/or sofas can also be removed on request if guests would like to turn this room into a dance floor.

Kitchen

In the kitchen a large island with bar stools provides seating for 11 guests. There is enough kitchen equipment to serve 80 guests at once, including extra-large pans and bowls to use when cooking for large groups. If you would like to organise outside catering, please contact us in advance of your booking.

In this room there is also a generous living area which seats 8-12 guests, with a Yorkshire Range fireplace and a large Smart TV with Blu-Ray player.

An additional tall fridge and freezer is provided in the utility room, along with two washing machines and a tumble dryer.

Dining Room

The dining room/orangery has seating for 36 guests on adjoining oak tables. The room benefits from plenty of natural light, and by night, a set of beautifully hand-crafted pendant globe lights suspended above the table light up the room.

There is additional seating with views of the private courtyard and water fountain. The room has bi-folding doors which open out onto the courtyard. Doors also lead to the lounge bar, kitchen and hall.

Cinema Room

No expense has been spared to provide state-of-the-art entertainment at Spicer Manor. The cinema room retains period features with high-level wooden beams and exposed stonework.

As well as providing entertainment for large family gatherings, the cinema is also useful for corporate meetings and away days, with access to the screen for presentations.

It’s perfect!”

“didn’t want to leave”

“If you are looking for a location for a celebration then there really is no better place.

The perfect countryside setting for a wedding.

We had a 3 night stay and didn’t want to leave. Coupled with Bradleys catering the day was perfect.

Thanks to Sarah, Lisa and everyone else.”

“beautiful building inside and out everything immaculate

“Stayed here for three nights with all of my family, over 30 for my mum’s 65th birthday.

Well what can I say from the moment we got there I was so taken aback from the place, stunning views, beautiful building inside and out everything immaculate and everything needed was there at hand, also doggy friendly.

I have stayed in some lovely places in my time but Spicer Manor has to be my favourite.

I’m hoping we all return at some point to make more wonderful memories.

Thank you.”
