The Old Rectory, Handsworth Is the Latest Venue to Join Vine Hotels


Hotel management and development company, Vine Hotels, is delighted to announce that The Old Rectory, Handsworth is the latest property to join its expanding hotel and venue portfolio.

The Old Rectory, Handsworth Is the Latest Venue to Join Vine Hotels


"The Old Rectory is a delightful period property that has huge potential to grow as one of Sheffields premium wedding and event destinations."
Garin Davies, CEO, Vine Hotels



The UK-based group has taken over the property with plans to reopen the venue in the coming weeks as a flexible space for weddings, private events, and small meetings.

 

The Old Rectory is a beautiful grade two listed stone building in Handsworth on the edge of Sheffield.  Earlier in the year, it faced an uncertain future after the independent charity running it was placed into voluntary liquidation, but Vine Hotels now plans to relaunch this historic venue to accommodate events for up to 200 guests. 

 

In addition to the Main Hall, there are two further Georgian period rooms, The Orgreave and The Ballifield, which can accommodate up to 60 guests and 20 guests respectively.

 

The announcement comes off the back of the recent purchase of Bredbury Hall in Cheshire by the company, as it continues to grow its group of owned, leased, and managed hotels and event venues. 

 

Vine Hotels CEO Garin Davies said: “Tucked away in its own quiet grounds this former rectory offers all the benefits of a quiet countryside locations, but with the convenience of close by transport links and Sheffield City Centre nearby. The Old Rectory is a delightful period property that has huge potential to grow as one of Sheffield’s premium wedding and event destinations.  We will bring our expertise in venue management and operations to The Old Rectory and restore it to the thriving venue we know it can be.”

 

Father Keith, Rector of St Mary the Virgin, Handsworth said: “We were delighted to agree terms for Vine Hotels to take over the management of The Old Rectory. Not only were we impressed by the company’s credentials in hotel and venue management, but we were drawn to their personal approach demonstrated in how sensitively they have managed similar properties. As well as the team’s desire to stay true to the historic character and community appeal of the Old Rectory. “

 

Vine Hotels is owned by former director general of the BBC Greg Dyke and chief executive Garin Davies, former divisional director of BDL Management and main board director of Best Western GB. The Old Rectory is the fourth property in a year to join the Vine Hotels portfolio of owned and managed venues, such as recent additions the Charlecote Pheasant, Stratford, Bredbury Hall, Stockport, and The Dartmouth Hotel and Spa, Dartmouth.  The group also includes the Best Western Cresta Court, Altrincham, the Mercure Southampton Centre Dolphin Hotel, Southampton and five properties in Sheffield.
