Bespoke Hotels appointed to manage recently sold Dumbleton Hall

Bespoke Hotels, the UK’s largest independent hotel group, has been appointed to manage Cotswold country hotel Dumbleton Hall following its recent sale.

With a history dating back over 400 years, Dumbleton Hall is a classic Grade II* listed country house hotel with 38 individually-designed bedrooms, restaurant, lounge and bar, as well as function rooms for weddings, private celebrations and meetings. Set amidst 19 acres of parkland and featuring an ornamental lake, the hotel offers guests the perfect place for a peaceful getaway, whilst being conveniently located near picturesque Cotswold villages and towns such as Broadway, Stow-on-the-Wold and the Slaughters.

The appointment comes following the sale of the hotel to a US-based buyer.

Discussing its appointment, Haydn Fentum, Chairman of Bespoke Hotels, commented: “We are delighted to welcome Dumbleton Hall to the Bespoke family. It is a truly outstanding hotel in a wonderful location, and we are confident that it will trade well as we move out of these difficult times for our industry.”

Following a period of closure in line with government COVID-19 guidance, the hotel is currently scheduled to re-open on 17th May, when it will once again be welcoming overnight guests, diners and couples celebrating their weddings.

The original Dumbleton Hall can be traced back to 1534, as the home of the Cocks family for over 200 years. It fell into disrepair after the death of Sir Richard Cocks in the late 18th century. It was eventually demolished in the mid-1800s and rebuilt using Cotswold stone as a classic country house for the Eyres family, who regularly hosted visitors including Sir John Betjeman and the Mitford sisters. In 1959, the Hall was then acquired by POFR (Post Office Fellowship of Remembrance) for the benefit of its members, before opening to the general public as a hotel in 1995.
