A hidden gem in the Yorkshire countryside, Stable Arches Boutique Hotel opened in late 2016 and is situated in a wing of the 14th Century Hooton Pagnell Hall. Hooton Pagnell Hall has been lived in by the Warde-Norbury family for over 300 years.
Julia Warde-Aldam, the current owner’s great great grandmother at the time owned a number of Estates around the country, in addition to Hooton Pagnell, which are all still in the family’s ownership today.
The five luxurious ensuite bedrooms in Stable Arches have been named after these Estates, hence the room names ‘Hooton’, ‘Frickley’, ‘Ederline’, ‘Healey’ and 'Nightingale'. These rooms have been beautifully transformed by Interior Designers Cussons and Storey. Traditional architecture has been combined with a sleek and contempory design and the use of calming and restorative colours throughout.
Julia also travelled extensively and was a keen and talented amateur artist; many of her pictures that she painted on her trips around Great Britain and the World are on display on the walls of Stable Arches.
At Stable Arches we are passionate about food. Much of our produce is grown on the Estate or locally sourced. Breakfast at Stable Arches is either continental or full English including sausages, bacon and black pudding from the award winning Doncaster food market, one of the finest traditional markets in England. Dinner is served on prior request and all dietary requirements can be catered for.
In the Dining Room of Hooton Pagnell Hall we can also host private Tasting Dinners in collaboration with renowned local Chefs; our Sommelier will assist you with your wine choice hand-picked from the Estate Cellars. Private dining experiences need to be arranged prior to requirement. Every evening our in-house Chef will create an improvised seasonal Estate Supper, for guests staying overnight, using much of our homegrown produce.
Hooton Pagnell Hall is also available to hire as a Wedding venue. The extensive grounds and variety of buildings allow our clients to tailor their weddings in a way that is unique to them. Our Events Manager guides each couple through the options to help create the perfect day. Options include having the Ceremony at our Church, holding a civil ceremony inside the 14th Century Hall, The Rustic Tithe Barn, within the Summer House or externally with the back drop of the Pavillion. Hooton Pagnell Hall can accommodate up to 120 guests for dining, or numbers in excess if hiring a marquee. The Bridal Party may relax and get ready in the Garden Suite in the Hall which has magnificent views of the estate gardens.
We look forward to welcoming you to Stable Arches Boutique Hotel, where we will ensure that you are exceptionally well looked after, and leave with lasting memories of your stay with us.
