What's new?
The 14th-century Manor House, a hotel and golf club and part of the Exclusive Hotels and Venues portfolio, is located in Castle Combe village in Wiltshire, where Steven Spielberg filmed War Horse. In January, it completed a £35,000 upgrade of its wi-fi facilities (there's intermittent mobile reception), alongside refurbishment of three rooms - The Marsh Furlong, Holders Mead and Home Meadow - at a cost of £50,000 per room.

Rooms
There are 48 - a combination of guestrooms and deluxe guestrooms and suites in the junior, deluxe junior and master categories, located in the main house and in a row of adjacent stone cottages. Rooms are individually designed, in a style that reflects the venue's heritage, with exposed beams or a more contemporary touch.

Event space
Meeting rooms in the main house all offer natural daylight; the largest can seat up to 100. The Bingham Suite, for up to 20 boardroom-style or 40 for dinner, recently had a smart TV installed. At the golf club, there are three spaces, the largest hosting up to 140. The Fastolf Suite, a space above the Clubhouse, was upgraded last year.

Dining
Michelin-starred The Bybrook restaurant, located in the main house, has a private dining area seating up to 30, or groups of up to 12 can dine in the main area.

Delegate downtime
Groups can play golf and take part in teambuilding putting competitions at the hotel's 18-hole championship golf course, or enjoy whisky-tastings and cocktail-making and demonstrations at the hotel.
