Improvements continue at Mellington Hall Hotel

When we took back control of Mellington Hall Hotel in November we made a promise to ourselves and to our future guests that never again would visitors find shabby rooms, worn linen or a frosty welcome. A warm welcome is now assured (with blazing log fires thrown in!) and the old linen has long since […]

‘Downton Abbey with a touch of Brideshead’

Not our words but those of a recent guest at Mellington Hall who was kind enough to post a review of the hotel on tripadvisor.com where you can read the recent reviews for yourself. Worth saying though how much feedback like this means to the team here at the hotel. Our aim is to make […]

Gathering winter fuel

These pictures show Alex Evans battling through the snow to deliver dry woodchips from the Ransfords sawmill in Bishop’s Castle to feed the wood chip boiler at Mellington where we use 100% renewable energy for heating and hot water. The logs on the fires in the hotel are from our own woodlands on the Estate and are mostly […]

Did someone mention snow?

We can’t guarantee that the snow will still be here when you come to try our Christmas menu…but we hope these pictures give you a flavour of how lovely Mellington Hall looks at this time of year. And don’t forget that after a bracing walk in the grounds there are blazing log fires and hot drinks […]

The Christmas menu at Mellington: save some room for the mince pies!

Little wonder our Christmas menu is going down a treat: it’s simply delicious. To start with you can choose from Parsnip and Apple Soup, Smoked Salmon Carpaccio served with pickled radish, orange segments and horseradish cream, or Chicken Liver, Brandy & Herb Pate served with a mixed leaf salad, pomegranate seeds and warm toast. For […]

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

As you can see, this place is as pretty as a picture at the first dusting of snow: greatly helped by the fact that the beautiful grounds are kept so well by the team here. It might be arctic weather outside but inside the hotel the log fires are crackling away and everyone’s as snug as […]

Up, running, and very nicely busy thank you!

Our new website is not the only thing that is now up and running. It’s really pleasing to report that since the management of the Hotel came back in to the hands of the family that owns it we’ve had nothing but praise from guests – whether they’ve stayed overnight or popped in for a […]

A fantastic plot

After 25 very happy years here at Mellington Hall Holiday Home Park, our lovely customers on plot 1 have sadly vacated.  We have removed the caravan from the plot to make way for a brand new holiday home.  This plot has a fantastic outlook, overlooking the pool and lush parkland.  It is crying out for […]

Major new development on the Holiday Home Park

Some fantastic images depicting how our new development is unfolding here at Mellington Hall Holiday Home Park with the first four concrete pads having been laid already by Keith and his hard working team. It won’t be long now before the sewer, gas and electrical works are also completed. The pool area has been expanded […]

Mellington Hall Hotel back in the fold

From the end of October 2017 we’ll be taking on the running of the Hotel in the grounds here. The family which owns the Holiday Home Park owns the building but it has been leased out to tenants for many years and run as a separate business. As those tenants move on it seems the […]
