About Us

Thornton Manor is a grade II listed Elizabethan house built in the middle of the 19th century and surrounded by exquisite park and gardens designed by Thomas Mawson. Located in the village of Thornton Hough, on the border of Wirral and Cheshire. From 1888 to the end of the 20th century the house was occupied by the Viscounts Leverhulme. Our historic estate is set amongst 120 acres of rural calm and beautifully presented countryside.


If you are looking for a truly unique venue in impeccable British countryside, look no further than Thornton Manor Estate.  With four exclusive venues, each tucked away in their own oasis of this extensive country estate, Thornton Manor offers a unique range of enchanting locations for your ceremony and celebration.


Thornton Manor can accommodate over 108 guests across the estate. We offer 22 Manor House Bedrooms and 14 Cottages and Annexes, several of which have brand new luxury hot tubs outside, and some are dog friendly. Individually designed and beautifully appointed, each room expertly combines luxury and contemporary decor. From fairy-tale fourposter bedrooms in the Manor House to a thatched cottage set in the extensive grounds, each and every one boasts original features, designed with complete luxury in mind.
