Professional & Attentive Service

To give you a little more stability in these uncertain times, we have introduced a new FLEXIBLE BOOKING POLICY. 
To find out more or discuss your requirements in detail please call 01727 750466 or email


Following the latest announcement from the Government on Monday 4th January 2021, we are sad to announce that we are now closed to the general public. Our understanding is that this will next be reviewed mid February.

We still have a small team available to answer queries or to discuss immediate bookings.  In line with government guidelines, we are able to support the filming industry, Elite athletes, those that need accommodation for specific work purposes and for some training and meetings requirements.

Our team are available on 01727 750 400 to answer any queries from 9am - 5pm Monday to Friday.  Please note our phones are not manned at the weekends. For general enquiries please e-mail the hotel on or visit our Frequently Asked Questions page.

If you have a booking in the coming weeks, our reservations team will be in touch as soon as they can to arrange a refund or if you wish, transfer your reservation to another date.

We hope this national lockdown is short lived and we are able to welcome guests back to the hotel in early spring.

Stay safe and well, warmest wishes from all at Sopwell House.

"I really, really wanted to thank you both and all the team for doing so much for this group. I honestly never had the chance to work with such a dynamic, caring, sympathetic and exceptional team ever before. And I honestly think I lack of words to express all you all did.  I truly felt that I was part of a big family and it was hard to leave on the 8th of June. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I know more than ever that if I have a group that has the requirement to be offered the Sopwell House…I will push your lovely hotel as much as I can!"
