A new chapter
The story of Tortworth Court dates as far back as the 11th-century when the original Torteword Manor was recorded in the Domesday Book.
In 1631, Sir Robert Ducie, the then Lord Major of London bought the manor and it still remains the family seat. In 1853, work on the Victorian mansion house that stands today was completed - commissioned by the 2nd Earl of Ducie and designed by architect Samuel Sanders.
During WW2, the house became a naval training base for coding and signals and was Grade II* listed by the English heritage in 1991, before becoming a hotel in 2001.
Today, the hotel has undergone an extensive multi-million-pound refurbishment project, bringing 21st-century touches to the rich heritage and detailing of the original building.
All of the bedrooms have been refurbished to reflect modern British heritage using accents of leather, tweed and linen along with the creation of 11 new bedrooms and suites.
The spa & gym have been refreshed along with the hotel’s bars and restaurants and the refurbishment of a number of event rooms including the Westminster Suite, the Victoria and the Kitchener rooms.
The Orangery, a Victorian conservatory and the most impressive event space at the hotel has also undergone an extensive refurbishment.
