Stanbrook Abbey Hotel is a former Grade II listed monastery which dates back to the early 16th-century. The property still retains many of its original features, including dramatic stone cloisters, Gothic- stained glass windows and a 100ft bell tower. Standing at the foot of the Malvern Hills, the venue is situated within a 26 acres estate, with plenty of places to explore, including a path lined with weeping willows, a tranquil and secluded lake and well kept walled gardens.
The hotel recently underwent a multi-million-pound renovation which introduced The Refectory restaurant and eight new bedrooms on the second floor and a further seven in the original schoolhouse bringing the grand total to 70 bedrooms.
