Set in over 100 acres of lush parkland in a spectacular Gothic Revival mansion, Oddfellows On The Park has its fair share of aristocratic aspirations. The 22-room hotel and now Design Hotel member is born from a meticulous renovation of Bruntwood Hall, and appears at first glance to be the archetypal English manor house idyll surrounded by mature oak trees, ponds, and woodlands. And yet its location just 15 kilometers from the centre of Manchester, meaning it’s also a gateway to one of the UK’s most exciting arts and music scenes. Add to the mix The Galloping Major restaurant and the charmingly rustic Pigsty salon and you have a must-visit British bolthole.
The 22 rooms and suites all offer views of the bucolic Bruntwood Park, and many boast original features, such as exposed beams, fireplaces, and architraves, the classical frames of doors and windows. The Park and Club Rooms feature luxurious beds you can sink into, as well as elegantly outfitted bathrooms and small seating areas. Located in the original master bedrooms of the Hall, the Playground Suites are defined by stylish contemporary four poster beds, perfectly located to take in the stunning views. However, it is the Bridle Suite—set in the Hall’s tower over two levels and comprised of a sitting room, bedroom, dressing area, and bathroom with a decadent double shower—that is the hotel’s pièce de résistance.
Jonathan Slater of Oddfellows Hotels adds: “It has been a wonderfully creative and challenging journey transforming and restoring Bruntwood Hall into the hotel it is today. It was a priority for us to retain the charm of the building in all its original glory – with a distinct nod to the building’s history and its position within the park. We look forward to sharing our wonderful hotel with the guests that will make it come to life again. Our restaurant, bar and salon are all pitched to embrace our local community. Manchester and South Manchester have a strong demand for quality dining experiences and The Galloping Major, named after one of the Hall’s previous occupants, will be a perfect complement to the region’s already excellent restaurant scene.”
Located in the vast grounds of Bruntwood Park, one of Greater Manchester’s largest green public spaces, Oddfellows On The Park is ideally located for country pursuits and outdoor activities. For those looking for a slice of city life, Manchester is just 15 kilometers away. Manchester Airport is 7km away | 15 minutes by car.
