A country house that was once a sanctuary for monsters of rock is set to reopen on 1 July as Brooks Country House hotel at Pengethley Manor, near Ross on Wye.
The 22-bedroom Georgian manor, which has been extensively upgraded and refitted, is understood to have been a bolthole for the likes of Led Zeppelin, Oasis and Jamiroquai when they were recording at a local studio. The refurb and its previous guests are unrelated.
Set in 13 acres of parkland between Ross on Wye and Hereford, the hotel boasts its own vineyard, a new restaurant, bar, heated swimming pool, leisure facilities, conference facilities for up to 30 and a wedding package.
The hotel, which is Brooks Hotels' fourth property, is decorated with classic English wallpaper from Cole and Sons to complement the open fires and traditional armchairs in the lounge and library areas. All bedrooms boast pocket sprung mattress beds, Hansgrohe power showers, marble bathrooms and rolltop baths.
The vineyard produces 500 bottles of Pengethley Estate dry white wine a year. Next spring two Airstream caravan glamping units will be put in the vineyard.
Brooks Hotels operates boutique B&Bs in Bath, Bristol and Edinburgh.
