Heythrop Park Resort

Heythrop Park Resort Projects Ridge & Partners LLP

Heythrop Park Resort is a stunning, luxury venue dating back to 1710 and set in 440 acres of beautiful Oxfordshire Countryside. The original manor house is one of the two largest houses in Oxfordshire and is Grade II Listed. Ridge has been involved with the estate for more than a decade since being appointed by hotels and leisure group Firoka, which bought Heythrop Park in 2000 and converted it into a leading hotel and conferencing facility.

Our past work for Firoka includes completing a 15,000-seat football stadium, a 200,000ft² leisure development, a 160-bed hotel and a feasibility study for the restoration of Alexandra Palace. Based on this track record we were appointed to Heythrop Park Resort on a series of redevelopment projects. These were:

  • The conversion of the main house from a conference centre into a 14-bed luxury hotel facility, while the 270 standard bedrooms in the additional accommodation wings were refurbished and incorporated into the hotel.
  • A feasibility study into the conversion of the development as a whole into a hotel & spa country resort, including an 18-hole championship golf course and a new leisure centre.
  • The refurbishment and alteration of the existing leisure facilities into a new health and fitness club. Amenities include a state-of-the-art gym, an indoor 20 metre pool, sauna and steam room, spa treatment facilities and a restaurant and bar.
  • The development of a new, 7,088 yd, par 72 golf course, which involved the sympathetic restoration of 440 acres of listed parkland.
  • The extensive redevelopment of 197 bedrooms, conference facilities and public areas to install the Crowne Plaza brand. This included the redesign of external approaches and courtyards.

Moving forward, there are proposals to develop a 120-room five-star boutique hotel, which will include a strategy to minimise disruption.
