The Villa Country House Hotel, situated in the quaint village of Wrea Green, is a four-star Country House Hotel with a 2 AA Rosetted Restaurant in the Lancashire countryside. In 2018 we were lucky enough to wine Downtown in Business’ Hotel of the Year Award!
First established in the 19th century, The Villa has drastically changed over the decades. Formerly an impressive gentleman’s residence, The Villa is now one of the most-loved Wedding Venues and Hotels in the North West. Remarkably, it has maintained its elegance that befits its great heritage despite extensive refurbishments.
The Villa has 31 luxurious bedrooms in total, all of which are furnished to the highest possible standard with superb en-suite facilities. We offer an excellent variety of bedrooms, family rooms, suites and staterooms, two of which have 4-poster beds and two have split-level mezzanine floors, to accommodate visiting friends and family.
Food and Outside Catering
The Villa is so much more than a hotel. Our 2 AA Rosetted Restaurant draws guests in daily. The 19th century restaurant oozes historic charm and serves divine culinary delights. There are several dining areas within our restaurant and over five different menus to choose from including; Afternoon Tea, Bar Lounge Menu, Table D’Hote Menu, Grill Menu, A La Carte Menu and much more.
Friday is a busy day for our Restaurant. Fish Friday Special, beer-battered fish with hand-cut chips, mushy peas and tartare sauce for just £6.95 or go large for £8.95, is a favourite amongst our guests. Sundays attract families with our great offer, two courses for £18.95 or three courses for £22.95.
Our Restaurant is often used for The Villa’s sell-out dining experiences. Twice a year we hold Wine Dinners which focus on wines and dishes from around the world. We also held our first ever Gin Dinner back in September which was a phenomenal event.
