The Elms is located in the heart of mid Worcestershire about 12 miles from the cathedral city of Worcester. Communications to the area are good. Junction 5, M5 is about 13 miles, there is a mainline railway station at Worcester, airports at Birmingham and East Midlands and helicopters land on the front lawn. The Elms is well located for holidaymakers to enjoy the nearby attractions such as Drayton Manor and Witley Court and is an ideal base to explore the nearby Malvern Hills, The Cotswolds and The Welsh Mountains.
This beautiful Queen Anne mansion was built in 1710 having been designed by architect Gilbert White of Worcester, a pupil of Sir Christopher Wren. Records show that it has always been known as The Elms. There is no doubt this was because of the elms lining the driveway. These elms have long since gone and today large limes stand in their place. Since 1840, The Elms has been home to a variety of occupants from Admiral Malin to the rector of Great Witley and finally Sir Richard Brooke, Baronet in 1916. Sir Richard added on two wings to the house, but on the first night following completion of this work, the old centre block of the house caught fire and was completely gutted, leaving only the main walls standing. Sir Richard then rebuilt it in its present form. The Elms was sold in 1946 and turned into a country house hotel. The building is now listed as a Building of Special Architectural Interest. In 2008 a Spa was added with a superb 12 metre indoor swimming pool, an indoor/outdoor hydro pool, a fitness suite, a thermal suite, 4 treatment rooms and the Garden Brasserie. The Elms is now part of Luxury Family Hotels Group and caters for all types of clientele. The hotel is ideal as a wedding venue, for a private conference or party, for a spa weekend or just for a quiet weekend in the country. THE RECEPTION ROOMS Entrance hall. Reception and office.
