Previously a hotel called Parkhill, Lime Wood was purchased by Jim Ratcliffe in 1999. It was closed in October 2004 when work was begun on its transforming renovation.

The original building is a Regency country manor house built on the site of an earlier 13th Century hunting lodge. It subsequently became a prep school for Royalty and aristocracy.

The architectural additions that we have made to the site were designed by Charles Morris and Ben Pentreath with interiors by David Collins.

We've thoroughly enjoyed bringing Lime Wood back to life and are thrilled with how our plans have turned out. We want you to get to know it, to enjoy it and to come back whenever you feel like being spoilt, breathing some fresh forest air, eating delicious food and just getting away.
