Built around 1760 in Brigg, North Lincolnshire and now a Grade II*  listed building, “The Exchange” as it’s known locally is the most stylish house of this period in the area. In its hay-day many important people came to stay, the most notable perhaps being the young Winston Churchill who returned in the war years, during the construction of the top secret “Pegasus Project”.

From card games on the infamous King William card table to ghosts and phantom feet roaming the hotel – this is an atmospheric, as well as beautiful, place to stay.

It has been owned by the Mullen family for the last 30 years.

The old stables and the coach house have been tastefully converted into hotel accommodation comprising twenty-two rooms set around a courtyard. During the owner’s extensive overseas travels he has picked up many ideas which can be been seen in the blending of an almost motel style with a hint of the New Orleans French sector. The beautiful surroundings make this the ideal place to stay whether on business, visiting family or just taking a relaxing romantic weekend break.

Brigg is a nice “quaint” market town and The Exchange is right at its heart, along with many pubs, cafés and shops.

Situated conveniently for Humberside International Airport and with Scotia Heliport just five miles away, many North Lincolnshire businesses can be reached within fifteen minutes.

Interesting places to visit within half an hour of the hotel include Hull which is home to the famous “The Deep”, the only submarium in the world and Lincoln with its steep hills, romantic bistro’s and the spectacular Cathedral where parts of the Hollywood blockbuster “The Da Vinci Code” were filmed.

Brigg is an ideal base from which to explore the Lincolnshire Wolds, an area of outstanding natural beauty and, for the more active, there are several golf courses nearby.
