near to Weeford, Staffordshire, Great Britain

Swinfen Hall Hotel
Swinfen Hall Hotel
The manor of 'Swynfeyn' is first recorded in the Domesday book of 1086 as belonging to the Bishop of Lichfield, and a manor house has stood on this site since Medieval times. The present Hall was completed in 1757 under the direction of local architect Benjamin Wyatt, the founder of one of the greatest architectural families in English history. The Hall was originally built for Samuel Swinfen, his wife and a domestic staff of 55. Samuel had made a fortune in trade in London and no expense was spared in the building.
