Vacations – Going on holiday with four or five is easy, but what if you want to get a group of you together… There are very few places to go, and even less in the Midlands of the UK.

Corporate Events – Have you been asked to arrange something at work – Team building, training, conferences. If everyone wants their own room then Stanton Manor can accommodate up to 10 guests overnight, if sharing is an option then up to 26 guests can stay overnight, and of course you can invite additional guests during the day.


Stanton Manor is set in a quiet, private village location. The old market town of Ashby de la Zouch is 5 minutes away providing a wide range of shopping, sports and entertainment facilities and Birmingham, Leicester, Burton upon Trent, Derby and Nottingham are all less than 30 minutes away. The village is very well placed for connections to the M42, M1, M6 and M40 motorway networks and East Midlands Airport and Birmingham Airport/International railway station are both about 20 minutes away.
