Mr Regmi’s said: “Very exciting times ahead. We will officially be running this beautiful manor house. A great deal of work to be done but it will be an exciting journey. A hotel, conference, wedding and events venue set in 4 acres of beautiful setting. Can’t wait to get in.”

Woodland Manor specialises as a weddings and corporate functions venue. The current building dates back to 1901 with the William Long Fitzpatrick family crest is displayed over the

main entrance.

After the Second World War the manor was used as a guest house and as a hospital for the Ministry of Supply, before becoming a hotel in 1973.
