More Information

Built in the 11th century by the Holy Order of Knights Templar, formerly a rambling manor house with its own chapel, this hotel boasts beautiful gardens, a rose walk and babbling brook.

The hotel's en suite accommodation is divided between the main house and the beautifully converted Court Mews, which offers luxury feature rooms. The oak panelled restaurant has an extensive menu and fine wine list. Traditional pub food, coffee and afternoon tea are served in the Babington Bar. Rothley Court itself is a rambling manor, with beautiful gardens, steeped in history and concepts of freedom. The Knights Templar used Rothley Court and the 13th century chapel in the building can still be visited. Lord Macaulay was born at the Court. Owner Thomas Babington, together with William Wilberforce, became the great 19th century reformers working towards the abolition of slavery.
