Soho House Group to open in Oxfordshire

The Soho House Group is to open a second out of London site in Oxfordshire, joining Babington House in Somerset.

Farnhouse will open next year at Tracey Farm, located between the villages of Great Tew and Enstone.

Planning permission has been granted to Soho House and Great Tew Estates to develop a hotel and leisure complex which will incorporate the conversion of original farm buildings, alongside the building of new properties.

Located on a 93-acre estate, it will feature a seven-bedroom farmhouse, a four-bedroom cottage, 30 cabins (ranging in size from one to three bedrooms), a boathouse, swimming pool, lakes, tennis courses and a five-a-side football pitch.

Babington House, opened in 1998 near Frome, is currently the group’s only out of town property. It has been credited as leading the way in creating a trend for relaxed and stylish country house hotels.
