On Tuesday 18th June we welcomed VIP guests to preview Spicer Manor at our open house event.

Journalists, bloggers and local business people were invited to look round the extensive accommodation and taste delicious food prepared by chef Andrew Bradley and his team at Huddersfield-based Bradley’s Outside Catering.

Wedding pianist James Hey delighted guests with their favourite tunes in our grand hall, while drinks were enjoyed in the lounge bar, including wines supplied by Penistone Wine Cellars.

Canapés were served on arrival, before the delicious sit-down buffet was served, providing an opportunity for guests to catch up in the orangery around the beautiful oak table. Andrew’s signature trio of desserts was a particular favourite!

One guest said of the event: “I can honestly say that Spicer Manor really is at the top of the tree and blew us away with an amazing wow factor. Lisa and Nicholas are very approachable and extremely friendly to their guests and visitors. Spicer Manor is a remarkable and outstanding property and they should be extremely proud of what they have created.”

Around 40 guests previewed the manor

Spicer Manor opened in January 2019 after a ten-year restoration project, which has seen the house transform from a derelict farmhouse into a luxury holiday home and events venue.

The house sleeps 34 guests in 15 charming en-suite rooms, with high-quality fittings throughout. Stunning views can be appreciated across to Ingbirchworth reservoir and the surrounding Yorkshire countryside. It also boasts a state-of-the-art cinema, games room and twin hot tubs.

Spicer Manor has a full wedding licence meaning you can spend your whole day with us. Our grand hall provides space for an intimate wedding ceremony, while the oak orangery is the perfect place to host a wedding breakfast. There is a lounge bar, and a private courtyard offers space for a barbeque or buffet reception.

A wedding fair is planned to take place at Spicer Manor later in the year to showcase the venue to brides and grooms-to-be. Further details will be announced on our Facebook and Instagram pages in the coming months.
