The stately old manors in Britain are quite diverse, and if there’s one thing you can say about them, it’s that they’re really impressive. They have some really high ceilings, multiple secret corridors, and beautifully landscaped gardens. There’s a whole lot to explore in these crazy buildings. A lot of them have even been turned into hotels for the public. Here, we’re going to take a look at 2 which could be converted into hotels in the near future:

Blenhein Palace, Oxfordshire

After winning the battle of Blenheim back in 1704, John Churchill, the 1st Duke of Marlborough, was given a manor in Oxfordshire, which he called the Woodstock Manor. He was gifted the manor by Queen Anne in return for the military success he had achieved. Blenheim place was made over a period of around 20 years, as per the designs of Sir John Vanbrugh. On its completion, the Churchills, one of the prominent noble families in the country, moved in and there was even a Column of Victory which was erected where they displayed the duke just as they would a Roman general.

Chatsworth House, Derbyshire

Bess of Hardwick was among the most prominent women back in the Elizabethan society. Once she married her 2nd husband in 1547, they purchased Chatsworth Manor. In 1552, the construction of their house began. Chatsworth House had an important role to play during the Civil War. Both parliamentarians and royalists occupied this house during different times. In the late 19th century, the Duke & Duchess of Devonshire started hosting some lavish parties here throughout autumn and winter. They were attended by some really big names including Queen Alexandra and her husband Edward VII.

Just imagine the kind of experience it would be living in one of these manors. It really would be an exceptional experience.
