Bents House & The Vinery
It is believed that Bents House was built by Thomas Ibbetson circa 1820’s. According to historic documents and census, the Ibbetson family experienced the Reign of King George IV, King William IV & witnessed the coronation of Queen Victoria whilst living at Bents House.
In 1880, owner occupier Charles Wood Esquire developed the property further by building an imposing Victorian greenhouse to the rear of the existing saddlery. Over the years it became well known for producing fine grapes and fruits from the garden orchard.
Sadly, with the passing of time, the property fell into a poor state of disrepair. Until local businessmen and Property Developers Alan Whyke and Michael Walker renovated the buildings and magnificent town centre garden in order to provide a fine period backdrop for the ultimate in hair & beauty salon experience.
Bents House and The Vinery hosts some of the regions top hair and beauty professionals, with a combination of skills and experience to cater for your every need.
We also collaborate with nearby Alexandra House Spa which is based in a beautiful historic building which was also renovated by Alan and his team of highly skilled tradesmen. The award winning Spa offers a wide range of holistic therapies and an unrivalled relaxation experience.
Every effort has been made to embrace the rich history of the buildings and harmonise that with the quality and range of services available. We believe that like a fine wine, Bents House and The Vinery just get better with age.
