Stanbrook Abbey Hotel is part of the following Travel Ideas:
"Even if it didn’t have a great bar, even if it weren’t a remarkable hotel, Stanbrook Abbey would be worth visiting.
The order that built this abbey began in France. In 1793, during the revolution, all 22 nuns were ejected from their original house and imprisoned for 18 months. On release they fled to England and eventually, in 1838 took over Stanbrook Hall near Malvern. Their original abbey buildings were designed by a local Worcestershire architect, but the current church, the Holy Thorn Chapel, and the abbey cloisters were new-builds by the sons of Augustus Welby Pugin, that great pioneer of Gothic Revival architecture in Britain.
Suffice it to say that since the nuns of Stanbrook moved to North Yorkshire in 2009, their old abbey has become one of the most dramatic hotels in the West Midlands. It opened in 2015 with some interesting re-use of space. The old St Anne’s Hall, once a library containing over half a million ecclesiastical texts, is now a function room and off it lies the Library Bar. Presided over by manager Shane McKenzie, the Library retains its old reading gallery with wooden steps running between the two levels. A sign reading “Nuns Only” encourages Shane’s clients to stay below to enjoy the old leather sofas, ancient wooden floors and equally old piano. This is definitely a place for imbibing something sinful."
"The Malvern Hills are home to a number of festivals. There’s a four-day Spring Festival for gardeners, a nine-day Walking Festival for ramblers and from 31 July to 2 August the far less sedate Malvern Rocks Festival which, is now in its fourth year. Promising non-stop music at a variety of pub venues, Malvern Rocks is undoubtedly noisier than anything else that goes on in this spa town. For all these events -or if you simply want to wander these beautiful hills on an Elgar pilgrimage - Stanbrook Abbey is a superb place to stay the night. Six miles from Malvern and four miles from Worcester, this red brick monastery owes its design to Pugin, the Victorian prophet of the Gothic Revival. Now turned into a hotel with its vaulted chapel a dining venue known as the Callow Great Hall, Stanbrook Abbey is a destination in its own right."
"Nestling beneath the Malvern Hills Stanbrook Abbey with its majestic cloisters is a heavenly setting for a wedding. A former monastery is grand in every sense of the word with Gothic wallpapers and décor, impressive carvings and stained glass. There are stunning gardens overlooking a lake and its lavishly decorated Great Hall, the former chapel ,can only be described as absolutely amazing."
