Hundred House, Great Witley, Worcester (Completed)
A unique ‘lifestyle’ development comprising of 4No. Town houses, 1No. Barn conversion and 11No. exquisite apartments in a lovingly restored Grade II listed building.
Hundred house dates back to the eighteenth century when it was built by Lord Foley, the owner of Witley Court to replace an estate inn on the same site. The previous inn is mentioned in the parish register as early as 22nd September 1653. The hotel name originated from centuries ago when the Hundred House was a collecting house for the tithes gathered from districts in the Doddingtree Hundred, which covered approximately forty villages in the north-west of the country (In the Domesday Book the Doddingtree Hundred consisted of thirty-eight manor).
Ancient hostelries in the country were of special importance. To a wide district they were the ‘hub of the wheel’ of social activity where meetings, dances and sporting events took place. The hundred House served a large area between the River Severn and the river Teme and was recognised as one of the most popular hotels in the country, it was a noted landmark, being indicated on the signposts and milestones within a wide radius.
HCT will, as part of the development restore the inn by bring to life Henry’s bar at the Hundred House. Henry’s bar will serve the collection of homes and provide the residents with private dining as well as providing a hub for the local community.
