Our Story

Our story began back in 2004, when the Wilton family were inspired to set up a chocolate business after seeing the first cascading chocolate fountain. They quickly snapped up the second and Chocolate Delight was soon hiring out fountains for film premieres and celebrity weddings, including Peter Andre and Katie Prices.

In 2006, the Wilton family saw an opportunity to expand and bought a beautiful but outdated 19 century grade II listed hotel. By Christmas 2007, restoration was complete and the worlds first chocolate themed hotel was born.

Move forward 9 years and we have just opened our second hotel The Chocolate Box. We acquired the hotel in Jan 16 and have been working hard to renovate the whole of the ground floor and breakfast/chocolate tasting room. All of this was completed by Easter and the ongoing works ( all of which are decorative) will be completed by the end of May.

The new hotel is being run by Leoni who is the eldest daughter of the Wilton Family alongside running her Childrens Chocolate Parties. Leoni is a very busy lady!!
