Travel Poster Manor House Hotel Devon GWR Railway Golf. Original vintage travel advertising poster Manor House Hotel Devon, Moretonhampstead. Issued by Great Western Railway. Lord Hambleden's Manor House was purchased and converted by G.W.R. to the Manor House Hotel in 1929. The hotel and golf course opened in 1930 and the hotel entertained many celebrities. Following several successful years, another 17 bedrooms, a cocktail bar, dining room and squash and badminton courts were added between1935-1936. From 1946 to 1983, it was returned to the Great Western Railway and re-opened as a hotel. It then changed owners again in 1991 when considerable expansion took place and the golf course became a top priority. The 18 hole championship course is now one of England's finest. The Manor House became Bovey Castle in 2003 and 22 estate lodges, a second restaurant, spa and pool were added, with further refurbishment of the bedrooms undertaken in 2008 by Annabel Elliot and her team. Bovey Castle became part of the award-winning Eden Hotel Collection in June 2014, joining seven other sister hotels across five counties from Warwickshire down to Devon. Eden Hotel Collection completed a multi million pound refurbishment of the public areas, spa and restaurants in 2015, and relaunched Bovey's new look in June 2015.Good condition, folded, tears on folds, creases and small tears on folds, unnoticeable pencil writings in the lower right corner.
