Fancy a foxtrot at Foxhill Manor?
At the heart of the beautiful 320-acre Farncombe Estate is Foxhill Manor, a Grade 1 Listed manor house built in Arts and Crafts style. For the first time in its history, the house is being opened up for Dance Courses.
With its sweeping drive, magnificent entrance hall and oak-panelled rooms, Foxhill Manor is an inspirational place to meet and learn. When it was built in 1909, the manor house stood in 100 acres of its own grounds. For a long time it belonged to the Maudslays, the family associated with both the Maudslay and Standard motor companies in the first half of the 20th century. This was also the childhood home of Henry Maudslay DFC who died in the WW2 Dambusters Raid.
After generations as a private residence, Foxhill Manor and its land became part of the larger Sørensen family estate. Even today, the upstairs rooms are an elegant HQ for Sorven Holdings Ltd, the company which runs the Farncombe Estate set of businesses.
Apart from the occasional photo shoot, this lovely, historic old house has never been open to the public before. Now the Sørensen family have decided to allow limited use for executive meetings and Farncombe Estate students.
Two executive meeting rooms – the Lord Mancroft Suite and Old Dining Room – both have fireplaces and stunning views over the Vale of Evesham. The Ballroom, with its full-length French windows and orangery-style roof, is perfect for our ballroom and Bollywood dancing courses.
