Set in the heart of Staffordshire, The Tawny combines all the best bits from a traditional hotel – a fabulous restaurant, seamless service, amazing facilities and heated outdoor pool – with your own private space. The result is a beautiful rural haven, deeply rooted in nature. Spread across the estate (which dates back to 1246), the 55 eco-conscious rooms, including wildwood huts, treehouses and romantic boathouses, are chic and cosy with superlative views – plus, all feature an outdoor bath on a private decking. There’s also a lovely treatment room housed in a quaint thatched cottage. Headed up by Michelin and Rosette-trained Executive Head Chef Chris Alexander, The Plumicorn, with its stunning vistas, serves an inspired menu, created using the best of local produce. Guests can order a picnic to enjoy in the grounds – the hotel has 70 acres of undulating landscape, dotted with lakeside gardens, secluded dells and enchanting follies. The adventure continues in bordering Consall Nature Park or the winding local canals – and the Peak District is only a stone’s throw away. Staff are super friendly and dogs are welcome too.
