Colwick Hall featured on Location, Location, Location
Colwick Hall Hotel, the ancestral home of Lord Byron, now fully restored to a luxurious sixteen bedroom hotel and premier functions venue was proud to be the host for the hugely popular Channel 4 series, Location, Location, Location.
Set in acres of rolling landscape, Country Park and marina, Colwick Hall boasts its Palladian style Georgian country house mansion with the eclectic lake and formal gardens to one side and the racecourse to the other. Location, Location, Location’s formidable duo Phil Spencer and Kirstie Allsopp were in Nottingham and Derby recently and met up with families seeking their next home purchase. Colwick Hall was featured on the programme shown on Channel 4 on Tuesday 24th July with Phil interviewing first time buyer and single mum Debbie.
Daniela Carson, Production Assistant of IWC Media who chose Colwick Hall as the venue for the crew of Location, Location, Location, directed the shooting and set within the Champagne Lounge in the hall and amidst the grounds alongside the lake with the backdrop of this impressive Grade II* manor. The lake was once the subject of many writs in the 1300’s as it was water diverted from the River Trent to the point it was left drought. Today it is home to many wildlife species and exotic plants. ‘’ Thank you for being so accommodating with our filming. The service was just fantastic’’ said Daniel Carson.
‘’When we were first approached by IWC Media to take over the hotel for a week for the crew and set, we were simply thrilled to be part of a successful show ‘’ says Divya Chavan, Sales Manager at Colwick Hall Hotel.
Colwick Hall Hotel can cater for a wide variety of events from weddings, birthdays and anniversaries, meetings and conferences, corporate events and gala dinners to family fun days for up to 1000 people.
Executive Director, Selva Muthalagappan was delighted to play host to this event. He said ‘’ It is always a pleasure to host the wide variety of functions we have here and are very thankful for that. Over the years we have had many famous people stay at Colwick Hall including His Holiness Dalai Lama, Jane Torvill, Psychic Sally, Lesley Garratt to name but a few. It is now an honour to add Phil Spencer to that list and it was great speaking to him. He was just like on the programme, very down to earth and lots of charm and character. We hope to see him back very soon.’’
