Through following generations there were a variety of "Gentry" owners, including Robert Earl of Sussex, The Stewkley family, Dame Juliana Langham and the Halliday family (1880), whose "Coat of Arms" still adorns the centre gable.During these preceding years the property was extended and the Georgian influence is still prevalent today particularly with its sweeping secondary staircase.Further afield are the Mendip Hills, historic cities Bath and Wells and the interesting area around Cheddar including the famous caves.Further south and within easy reach of a ‘day trip’ you will find the delightful county town of Taunton and the Quantocks and Exmoor.Building History Owners Location A detailed history of Uphill Manor is available in the Library to any guests who maybe interested in reading about it.By way of a brief introduction, when built in 1805, The Manor was known as Uphill Castle; it is one of the most historic buildings in the area and serves as ‘one of the most unusual urban hotels in the country.’ Purchased in 1853 by Thomas Tutton-Knyfton, he added the Drawing Room and Octagonal Hall and Tower in the Victorian ‘High Gothic’ style – striking architecture with intricate stone work and stencilling.In 1914 the Lysaght family purchased the Manor and added a gracious wing of Edwardian proportions which included the striking 106 foot Gallery and adjoining Ballroom (now the dining room).During its heyday in the late 1960s and 1970s the property hosted fine banquets and dinners, dances, weddings and tennis parties with Fred Perry.

Considerable work has also been carried out to the roof of the property.

There are many local and regional attractions for leisure visitors, including miles of sandy beach, the new Grand Pier, a large choice of restaurants, pubs and hotels, The Playhouse Theatre and the well known Cribbs Causeway shopping mall.
