Tudor and Lucy Hopkins own and manage The Moonraker with help from a brilliant team and their dog Camber. They bought the hotel in July 2013. Tudor has worked in a number of 5 star hotels in London including The Connaught, Grosvenor House, The Leonard and Browns Hotel. In June 2013 he sold his previous hotel, The Gallivant on the East Sussex coast, having transformed it from a dusty dated hotel to a beachy nautical haven voted one of the UK’s top coastal hotels. His wife Lucy had a career in environmental behaviour change and was working for the not-for-profit company WRAP, before taking on The Moonraker. Lucy creates drawings and prints used on the hotel materials including the pictures used in this directory. Tudor and Lucy have many plans for The Moonraker. Camber the Dog is also excited about the changes ahead. He said ‘We love the rustic rambling charm of The Moonraker. We are working hard to quietly transform this hotel back to its former glory. We would love you to complete the feedback forms which you will find in your room so we can stay focused on what is really important to you’.
Dating back 500 years, The Moonraker is a Grade II listed manor house set in four acres of land. Within the grounds are a walled garden, paddock, ponds and converted outbuildings from its days as a farm. This is all set in beautiful West Wiltshire near Bath. The house faces approximately southeast on Trowle Common, a domesday book site. Trowle was an ancient tithing of Bradford-on-Avon and originally stretched into the town as far as Barton Farm and included all the built up area south of the Town Bridge. In the medieval period it was part of the Abbess of Shaftesbury’s Bradford Manor. Originally a typical farmhouse, it was altered to a genteel gentleman’s residence in 1700, to mirror the rebuilding of Bath in a country setting. At this time, it was altered and faced in Ashlar to its present Georgian style, not dissimilar to Highgrove, Prince Charles’ house. The Legend Of The Wiltshire Moonrakers Five hundred years ago, when the Moonraker manor house was born, Dutch and Flemish merchants had headquarters in Swindon, attracted there by the high profit obtained from the wool trade.
We have 23 bedrooms that are located in the manor house, the old pig sties, the old cow sheds and the old barns. The Moonraker has 23 beautifully appointed bedrooms, walled gardens, kitchen garden and a paddock area. Chef Dean Toon has created mouthwatering dishes using the hotel’s kitchen garden and on site smokery.
