Lemore Manor is a very romantic house; light-filled and gracious. There are 15 bedrooms within the main house (12 of which are en-suite – there are a further 2 bathrooms), then the sweetest Lemore Lodges. Each is en-suite, and they add an extra 8 single beds, providing room for up to 38 guests to stay at Lemore Manor.
Oozing character, the property still retains many of its original features, but its country charm is matched by an elegant and contemporary décor throughout. Alongside the gardens, take a little time to savour the detail of the splendid drawing rooms, dining room, garden room and basement entertainment rooms, whether you are seeking quiet contemplation or to join in the fun with family and friends. The beautiful Orangery is complemented by the historic Coach House, recently converted into a ceremony room and linked to the main house by a glass walkway. Surrounded by an intimate courtyard with its own ancient olive tree and clay pizza oven, this makes the perfect setting for unique and special events.
Margaret and Ben came to Lemore in 2007 and have undertaken extensive renovation work since then. Every new guest is treated like a member of the family. They are totally passionate in tailoring your day to exactly match your needs, making it the ultimate celebration, packed with unforgettable memories.
Within the house itself, there is a drawing room, dining room, as well as the serene Garden Room and the country kitchen. There is also a lift to access the first and second floors.
There’s a games room (with pool table and bar) in the Gentleman’s Retreat, there is also a ‘movie room’ that has a ceiling embedded with sparking lights; perfect for children and adults alike. The Manor boasts the most magnificent orangery, which seats up to 150 guests for a banquet or wedding breakfast and reception.
Connected to the main house via a Glazed Link is the Coach House, which has been designed as a great open and flexible space, perfect for a wedding ceremony, or lecture (like the Orangery, it seats up to 150 guests).
The gardens at Lemore are very gorgeous, lots of sweeping lawn and topiary.
Thoughtfully-placed benches abound, with views of the Herefordshire countryside. Nestled in the trees is a delightful little area with its own Secret Garden called ‘The Hen House’. This is where brides can get ready for their day in complete privacy. It has a hot tub and a zillion mirrors.
The French styled bandstand is licensed for a wedding ceremony, just off the main terrace.
