Bed Business Property Serves Many Functions

From training staff to providing resources for the business, the farm and manor was an expensive but productive undertaking

Four years ago, MD Simon Spinks bought Hornington Manor, an enormous 18th-century manor house that is part of a farm at Bolton Percy, near Tadcaster, in the United Kingdom. The farm and manor belonging to the family bed business, Harrison Spinks. Artisans, architects and historians have helped restore Hornington Manor to its old glory under the guidance of Ruth Ferguson and her sister in law Andrea Spinks. “It was a bit daunting at first but we absolutely loved it and the more rooms we got through the more confident we became,” Ferguson says.

The two woman have efficiently brought the 18th-century manor house into the 21st-century. The Hornington Manor is now a grade two-listed building that has 16 en-suite bedrooms and 5 kitchens. MD Simon Spinks bought the property largely for the 300 acres of land, which enables him to grow eco-friendly, all natural fillings for his mattresses. Hemp, flax and wool from 500 Suffolk and Texel sheep and crops planted on the farm feed the company’s brands, which include Spink, Edgar, Somnus and Harrison. the farm also supplies resources to Barker and Stonehouse, John Lewis as well as Feather and Black.

The Hornington Manor is now used for staff training and a venue for corporate events. People from stores all over the country attend meetings and workshops. The house also provides accommodation to the travelers as well as an opportunity to test the beds out for a night. Thanks to Hornington Manor’s potential to accommodate up to 32 people, it doubles as a luxury holiday. Hornington Manor is split into four separate parts — the main Georgian house along with a Victorian West Wing, servants’ quarters and a lodge house.
