We were fortunate enough to be able to stay 1 night at this remarkable Jacobean Manor. Lots of charm and character.. hosted by Ian and liz who made is feel very welcome. We enjoyed a lovely evening meal and hearty breakfast. Its a great place to stay as a base to explore the area. You really need at leasr 2 or 3 nights to appreciate fully, all that there is to see and explore.

What a wonderful evening we spent at Ian and Liz's home, a truly wonderful house, it was fantastic to hear the history and Ian is so proud of his home. Breakfast was wonderful as was his homemade marmalade, which we bought a couple of jars and free range eggs a must. The 2 rooms were fantastic, beautiful and clean, nothing was too much trouble, the absolute gentleman and perfect host. Many thanks .

Jane, Stockport

We had a wonderful two nights at Worthenbury Manor and would highly recommend it as a base for exploring this part of the world! The room was spacious and tastefully decorated with a lovely en-suite bathroom. We were fortunate to have the Manor to ourselves and really enjoyed the living room with its huge open fire! The breakfasts were excellent, and Ian went out of his way to ensure that we were enjoying our stay.

I stayed at Worthenbury Manor after flying in from Australia. It provided a wonderfully refreshing and relaxing start to my stay in the UK. Although off the beaten track, it's easy to find with the help of a navigation device, and is within easy reach of Chester, Wrexham, Shrewsbury and Manchester. Having only two guest rooms mean that the hosts give wonderfully attentive service. The breakfasts are superb! The house itself is interesting, the accommodation comfortable and I'd definitely return if the opportunity came up to do so. Highly recommended.

Mary, Adelaide

What a Fabulous find, we felt like Lord & Lady of the Manor and were treated as such. Worthenbury is full of period character and charm. Book both bedrooms and you have the place to yourselves. Ian and Liz made us extremely welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Luxurious rooms and modern bathrooms with lots of added comforts. The breakfast was an amazing experience of locally sourced produce - the best we've ever eaten. Will definitely return.

Paula, Cheshire

I had an idyllic one night stay at Worthenbury Manor - very restorative between work engagements. I was greeted by Ian and shown around and offered tea and cake in the welcoming sitting room. My room was very well appointed, comfortable with every requirement thought of. Ian cooked me an excellent evening meal - the breakfast too was delicious and I have come home with some Worthenbury Manor lime marmalade! I would thoroughly recommend the place - a very friendly and courteous host, comfortable and beautifully appointed rooms and excellent value for money.

Timandra, Winchester

Wonderful place to stay. Would go back in a jiffy!! Beautiful old furnishing which we felt privileged to enjoy. Four poster bed. Roaring fire in the sitting room. Nothing was too much trouble for the host - Ian, who cooks the best breakfast and makes the best marmalade in the world. My only concern is that if I speak too well of it everyone will want to go there and we won't be able to book when we want to go back!!

Sue, Stockport

A wonderful second stay at Worthenbury and if anything is was even better second time around. The attention to detail is lovely and every guest need is thought of , from the fresh milk to go with our pot of Earl grey to the provision of top of the range toiletries in the bathroom. We were stating in Capt Rayners room with is beautiful and very comfortable four poster bed. This room has been made even more comfortable with the addition of 2 rather grand chairs and a table placed next to the window which was a lovely place to enjoy our tea and lemon drizzle cake provided by Ian. Breakfast superb

Gaynor, Leigh

My stay is always very special,in a wonderful setting and in a beautiful house. Everything is beautifully decorated and clean and the rooms are spacious and cater well to make your stay very special indeed. Food is excellent and attention to detail and individual requests absolutely the priority.I love it there and always look forward to my stay and have never been disappointed.

Paula, Stroud

What a wonderful 3 night stay we had. Came up to Wrexham for business and the stay in this B&B made the trip all the more worthwhile. Fantastic rooms, immaculately kept, great breakfast and lime marmalade jam is superb - I purchased a bottle to take home. Great host.

Rudi, Wokingham

We had a fantastic long weekend here. We stayed in the oak room, where, in addition to the gorgeous and comfy four poster, we also enjoyed a constant supply of coffee, tea and fresh milk. We both took advantage of the bath in our private bathroom for a good long soak in the deep bath. The breakfasts were absolutely smashing. Lots of local produce, I can recommend the home made lime marmalade! During the day we visited some of the local sites and pubs, before relaxing in front of the fire in the private sitting room. Even in winter, perhaps especially in winter, this was an absolute delight.

Rose, Leeds

Very comfortable, plenty of space, warm welcome and beautifully cooked breakfast. Highly recommended.


We had a delightful night here. The room large and comfortable, a roaring fire to sit by, and a dinner worthy of a restaurant with a star or two. Breakfast must have been the widest range we've ever come across - and then we enjoyed a lengthy chat with Ian, who loves his house and cooking.


One of the best B & Bs I have stayed in; Worthenbury Manor is a characterful house and Ian and Liz are perfect hosts. Every possible need has been considered and nothing is too much trouble. Ian's breakfasts, and in particular his Oxford marmalade, were absolutely fantastic. Highly recommended!


This is a wonderful place with a beautiful room in a lovely house. Ian's hospitality is so very warm and sincere. His breakfast with locally sourced ingredients, homemade bread and marmalade is to die for. Lots of nice touches in the room. We loved this place and thoroughly recommend it.


Loved it. Ian is a real character and could not have been more helpful. The room was beautiful and the little touches like fresh coffee and cookies went down very well. We ate so much breakfast we were full until tea time - the jam and homemade bread is AMAZING.


I've just had a wonderful three night stay with Ian & Liz, the most congenial of hosts. My room was large, comfy & well-appointed as was the ensuite bathroom. I even had a sofa and fireplace. The two dinners were outstanding, including home grown vegetables and so was breakfast with lots of fresh fruit, home-made marmalades and jams, and a big selection of hot cooked choices. Weather prevented my enjoying the pretty garden, but I'll hope for sun on the next visit. The location is quiet and well connected for tourism and visits to Wrexham, Chester and further afield.


My husband and I spent two nights at Worthenbury Manor with his partially sighted mother. It could not have been a better choice - all the facilities of a 5star+ hotel with the relaxing atmosphere of a delightful home. Ian's dinners were superb - and reflected the care and attention that both he and Elizabeth put into every detail in caring for their guests. We recommend that you find a reason to visit this beautiful area of the UK and stay at Worthenbury Manor.
