Wroxall Abbey gains four star AA grading
Seeing stars at Wroxall Abbey
Champagne corks have been popping at Wroxall Abbey Estate as quality awards and plaudits have flooded in.
The recent Four Star AA grading is the latest in the collection of awards that Wroxall has won, complementing the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence for 2012 and the Shires Magazine Wedding Venue of the year for the second year running.
Wroxall is a hidden gem nestled in 27 acres of open parkland occupying a unique setting amid the peaceful Warwickshire countryside.
Since it was founded in 1141, Wroxall Abbey has been a significant Warwickshire landmark and was at one time the country-seat of Sir Christopher Wren, the architect of St Paul’s Cathedral, London.
There are plenty of places to relax and unwind. Try Broadwood, the classic Champagne and Cocktail Bar, which boasts roaring log fires in winter and unspoilt views across the gardens and parkland; or the Garden Lounge, which has direct access to the Sun Terrace for coffee or pre- or post-dinner drinks.
Why not experience the culinary delights of Sonnets Restaurant? With a magnificent fireplace, rich oak floors and splendid view, this is the perfect setting to enjoy the seasonal dishes that are bursting with local ingredients
Wroxall recently launched a new calendar of events and has already hosted its first Italian and Opera Evening.
On August 10, it will continue with a Champagne Celebration, when guests can enjoy a sumptuous paired seven-course menu and Champagnes, accompanied by an informal and entertaining insight by wine and Champagne tutor Laura Clay. Priced at £75 per person, with special accommodation rates available, this promises to be another convivial evening.
Its popular tribute nights return on August 17, with Kevin Paul performing as Elvis. This will be accompanied by a special three-course menu for just £29.95 per person.
Whether it’s your dream wedding, family celebration, business meeting or simply a break away from the daily grind, make Wroxall your number one venue.
