A Traditional Setting in the Heart of England

Located within easy walking distance of the historic town of Bewdley – is the beautiful Georgian manor house of Kateshill.

Built circa 1740, and originally known as Hill House the house was renamed during its life to ‘Kateshill’ to reflect the historically significant land it lies upon. Situated at the top of the hill outgoing from Bewdley town, the walk was a favourite of the ‘Forgotten Stuart Queen’ Catherine De Braganza, who, rumor has it, was also famous for introducing us to the great cup of tea! To this day the house retains many of its original features, and has been sympathetically restored where needed, whilst also benefitting from added 21 st Century luxuries.

The house was originally owned by The Cartwrights (1730 – 1850), the first recorded sale of the house was to a Mr. John Bury, a solicitor residing at Tickenhill Manor House, for the sum of £3,900, equivalent to around £455,000 in today’s money. The Bury family occupied the house all the way through until 1900, when the house was again sold on to the Brintons (1900 – 1904). Very little information is known about the house, until the recorded sale again to The Whitcombe family (1908 – 1970) when the house was then sold on to a Dr. Hickin for the sum of £18,000. During Dr. Hickin’s occupancy of Kateshill, he sold part of the house grounds, Little Kateshill and the Coach House. In the early 1990’s Kateshill was sold on again and used as a care home, which saw The Brew House sold, and remained that way until Mr. Graham and Mrs. Judith Bullock purchased the house in 2002. They took about the task of painstakingly restoring and renovating the building from a 22-bedroom care home to the beautiful Georgian manor house you stand in today.

The house is predominantly mid-18 th Century architecture, with some late 19 th C. and 20 th C. alterations. It is built of brick with stone dressing and a hipped tile roof, three stories on cellars with stone modillioned cornice. The central entrance approach is by stone perran and stone venetian door case, with open pediment and Doric columns, the door has a gothic glazed fanlight with half glazed door.
