Introducing… the Coach House
Bringing History to Life
In summer 2016 we unveiled a very exciting new development.
In an undertaking involving a team of over twenty dedicated craftsmen, we resurrected the original
Coach House of Howard’s House, restoring it to its former glory and restyling it as a luxurious space
suitable for parties, events and business functions.
The formerly disused Coach House now boasts a stunning hospitality space featuring beautifully
crafted stonework and airy 5m ceilings. The space has been thoughtfully designed with elegant,
comfortable seating, a cosy log burner, and classic décor including striking artworks and a
magnificent 19th century mirror.
The Coach House now caters for private events, including:
- Private parties and functions
- Meetings, conferences and training sessions
- Celebratory occasions
- Afternoon tea, buffets and drinks receptions
The team at Howard’s House were delighted to welcome Lord Thurso, President of the Tourism
Society*, to officially declare the Coach House open for business. “As the truly discerning know, real
luxury is time, space, and personal hospitality. Howard’s House has been delivering it with charm
and style for years. The newly restored Coach House is another wonderful addition to this secret
gem,” said Lord Thurso.
In recent years the hotel has received national acclaim from industry experts including Sally Shalam,
Fiona Duncan and Tom Chesshyre for its beautiful location, commitment to the highest standards of
hospitality, and excellent seasonal cooking.
Now the Howard’s House team look forward to this new opportunity to enhance and build upon
their existing business. “Howard’s House is a very special place,” says Partner Simon Greenwood.
“Our commitment is to retaining our ‘home from home’ approach to hospitality, to creating a
memorable, personalised experience for every guest.”

*Lord Thurso is President of the Tourism Society and Chairman of Visit Scotland. Trained by the Savoy Group, John became Europe’s youngest five star general manager when appointed to run the Lancaster in Paris – the start of a long and illustrious career in hospitality which saw him create Cliveden – Britain’s highest rated hotel – before moving on to be CEO of Granfel Holdings, owners of East Sussex National Club, and then rescuing Champneys where he starred in the TV documentary Trouble at the Top: Shape up with Lord Thurso. A hereditary peer, he sat in the House of Lords, was then elected an MP and is now back in the Lords – the only person to have been ‘there and back again’.
