The Last Drop Village Hotel & Spa is much more of a destination than just a hotel, for starters it's located on the edge of the beautiful West Pennine Moors, a perfect backdrop for your wedding photographs. The Last Drop Village Hotel & Spa started life as a cluster of farm buildings which date back to the 17th century. Originally known as ‘Orrell Fold. it is thought the name came from the Orrell family who owned the land and the estate, the Manor of Turton, from the 1420’s. In 1930 a well-known farmer and race horse owner and trainer, William Carr, brought the farm and used Orrell Fold for stabling and exercising his horses.
The farm was eventually sold in 1963 to Carton Walker, a visionary entrepreneur who created The Last Drop Village. The name was created as Mr Walker was celebrating the finishing touches on the restaurant. His friends offered him ‘the last drop’ of a bottle of wine to mark the occasion. That was back in 1964. Today, The Last Drop Village Hotel & Spa is a unique and friendly four-star destination with a host of prestigious awards under its belt. Situated on the fringe of open countryside with superb views across the West Pennine Moors. The Last Drop Village is a picturesque collection of Georgian farm buildings converted into craft shops, florist, hairdresser, antique and jewellery shops, artist studio, village pub, tea room and a spa resort and hotel. Such an unusual, quirky place, a quaint little village to have a walk around and certainly offers something a bit different for your wedding photographs.
