Park Lodge – Abbots Bromley, Staffordshire
An elegant Grade II-listed hunting lodge that originally formed part of the grand estate of neighbouring Blithfield Hall, Park Lodge has a sporting history dating back to the early 19th century. It’s now part of the Bagots Park Estate, which offers pheasant and partridge shooting as well as simulated clay shooting days. The lodge is the ideal location for your sporting week or countryside weekend. Tucked away down a secluded, two-mile-long private drive, the eight-bedroom house (which sleeps up to 15) was built in Tudor-Gothic style and boasts authentic features like the wood-panelled reception hall, original shutters and open fires. It’s all nestled within the romantic, rolling vistas of the Staffordshire countryside, with two further ensuite rooms in the nearby coach house and an adjacent paddock which is perfect for a wedding or other big celebration. And you can be sure of the most personalised service possible: the lodge and its grounds are family-owned, with options of self-catering and a private chef. A stay you certainly won’t forget in a hurry.
