LANGAR HALL, Langar, Nottinghamshire

THE PAST:

The house you see today was built in 1837, on the site of a much larger 18th-Century Hall - the home of Admiral Lord Howe. His victory against the French known as The Glorious First of June 1794 is celebrated every year at Langar.
That great building was demolished by fire in the early 19th Century, and the present modest house built on a fragment of the site. Overlooking medieval fishponds, gardens and parkland, it enjoys quiet seclusion sheltered by the 12th-Century church known as The Cathedral of the Vale. This was the childhood home of the late Imogen Skirving who, on her father’s death in 1985, took in paying guests to raise funds to refurbish the house with a view to selling it. Nottinghamshire didn’t see many tourists at that time, but two barristers came to stay for the duration of a trial at Nottingham Crown Court - the Britannia Park fraud case - which lasted an unprecedented 18 months, and entered The Guinness Book of Records.
Langar Hall’s reputation for exceptional hospitality quickly spread among barristers, and soon businessmen, Jockey Club officials, the BBC’s Test Match Special team, footballers, cricketers , actors and writers filled the rooms. This persuaded Imogen that life as a hotelier was fun - and could fund the upkeep of the house and gardens. As she herself said: “I worked so hard I quickly forgot about selling and started investing to make the house more comfortable for the guests.”

THE PRESENT:

In a timelessly English rural setting at the end of an avenue of lime trees in the Vale of Belvoir, a warm welcome awaits guests at Langar Hall which, in 2010, celebrated 25 years as a hotel.

THE PLACE FOR YOU?

It's an excellent choice for those who enjoy a home-from-home holiday in a quintessentially English setting.
Langar Hall is licensed to perform civil wedding ceremonies.

THE PROPERTY IN DETAIL:

RELAXING:
This is a very English country house, beautifully styled and wonderfully comfortable, that feels like home – and also has the satisfying feel of a little-known secret that you’re one of the few to have discovered. In summer, sunshine streams into the rooms; in winter, there are open fires to sit at.

EATING & DRINKING
Occupying two elegant, candle-lit rooms, the restaurant reflects owner Imogen Skirving’s passion for ‘real food’ - regionally sourced, simply cooked and seasonal. Home-made ice cream is a feature, and cheese choices include such local stars as Colston Bassett, Cropwell Bishop and Long Clawson Stiltons. The wine list comes with Imogen’s personal comments and recommendations.

The Garden Room is full of light and warmth on the darkest day. In summer guests spill out Into the sheltered garden. Children can run out to play on the swings while parents enjoy a glass of wine in peace - perfect for a light lunch or afternoon tea.

SLEEPING
The 12 well-appointed bedrooms are all named after previous occupants, whether family members or fondly remembered guests. They vary in size and in style, but all have big beds (one a four-poster, one a half-tester) and beautiful views. The largest room, Edward’s, has a cast iron and enamel bath, but no shower. Lilac, facing south over the garden, was Imogen’s room. Nursery was once just that; Bohemia, in a wing a short walk away through the church garden, was an artist’s studio; it’s now a favourite for honeymooners. An unexpected eccentricity is the A-frame chalet on the croquet lawn: small and private, it suits lovers and loners down to the ground.
