Moreteyne Manor description
The Snagges then sold the property to Sarah, Duchess of Marlborough who left it to her grandson the Honorable John Spencer. The Spencers continued to hold the property until 1811 after which the Manor passed to the Alington Family.
The Duke of Bedford bought the Manor from Mr Julius Alington of Great Barford in 1873. The building was substantially renovated in 1880 when it was converted in to the farmhouse of the Moat Farm. During the works all the oak panelling was removed to its present location in Woburn Abbey.
The farm and house were then sold in 1920 to the Franklin family who later sold it to the present owners’ father, Mr E. J. Hillson in 1948 for the sum of £7,500.
The house was converted into one of the finest restaurants and wedding reception venues in Bedfordshire, between November 1983 until the opening on 1st August 1985, when the name changed to Moreteyne Manor. Chef Mark Hickman and his wife Jacqui acquired and re-opened the restaurant in June 1996. They have run Moreteyne Manor country house restaurant as a husband & wife team to the present day.
