It’s getting better all the time

One of the nicest spaces at Mellington Hall (in a building full of fascinating corners) is the William Morris room, named after the designs by that great artist which adorn the ceiling. As part of our continuing improvements we have just refurnished the room to bring it up to standard. Morris himself urged us to […]

A room with a view. Well, actually, we have a 10 of them.

Most of us live in streets in towns and cities so our view as we look out from our bedroom windows is mostly of cars and houses. That’s why staying at Mellington Hall is so special. Look at these views from two of our bedroom windows. Even in January you can see for miles through […]

So, whilst this brand […]

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 […]
