A house with history

Kelham House dates back to 1903, when it was built by the Manners-Sutton family, relatives of the Earl of Rutland. It was a comfortable home and saw plenty of life until it was sold and turned into a hotel called the Redhouse Country Manor.

We acquired the building in 2010 and have done our best to restore all the original features, as well as changing its name back to Kelham House as it was known all those years ago.

Our aim was always to revive the Edwardian elegance of the house, and to bring the standard of the house up to the standard of our service.
