History of The Elms
This beautiful Queen Anne mansion was built in 1710 having been designed by architect Gilbert White of Worcester, a pupil of Sir Christopher Wren.
Records show it has always been known as The Elms. There is no doubt this was because of the elm trees lining the driveway. These elms have long since gone and today large limes stand in their place.
Since 1840, The Elms has been a home to a variety of occupants from Admiral Malin to the rector of Great Witley and finally Sir Richard Brooke, Baronet in 1916. Sir Richard added on two wings to the house, but on the first night following completion of this work, the old centre block of the house caught fire and was completely gutted, leaving only the main walls standing. Sir Richard then rebuilt it in its present form.
The Elms was sold in 1946 and turned into a country house hotel. The Elms is now listed as a Building of Special Architectural Interest.
