A historical and innovative development
The grounds of Froyle Park have a long and interesting history, dating back to 1620 when they were built. Originally, this was a manor house; it was then used for various things, including a military hospital in World War One.
At one point, the majority of the site was used as a special school for adults with learning disabilities. The college offered young people the chance to learn and gain independence. Due to extensive refurbishment that was needed, the school was eventually relocated. Today, the manor house is used as an exclusive setting for events, including weddings.
Since then, the site has undergone extensive developments. However, as much of the countryside around it has stayed the same. Froyle Park has been made to blend seamlessly into its natural surroundings, creating beautiful new homes with a lot to offer.
