Dating back to the 16th century, Passford House Hotel is steeped in history. It was formerly the home of Lord and Lady Arthur Cecil, Queen Victoria’s private secretary. The house lay by an old ford which used to be the main road between Lymington & Sway – hence “pass the ford”.
Ian Hudleston born in 1946 in Edinburgh, educated at The Edinburgh Academy, The Scottish Hotel School and various Junior and Senior Management roles decided to purchase Passford House Hotel in 1995.
