History of the hotel
It is believed that the house was built between 1815 and 1825 by Anthony Bushby Bacon. Perhaps the most famous resident was Lady Elizabeth Shelley, the mother of Percy Bysshe Shelley, who purchased Elcot in 1844 and moved there with her two daughters Hellen (family spelling) and Margaret. Hellen was fond of her brother Percy and in 1857 while she resided at Elcot she wrote a series of letters about her memories of their childhood together. These letters became the key sources in the many biographies that have been published about the poet.
