“Wonderfully shabby chic”
Reviewed 4 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

What a fabulous setting, wonderful countryside, convenient and very relaxed. Well designed and decorated, friendly and helpful hosts. A real home from home. For a large family of 7 it was incredibly spacious, the children were buzzing! Would recommend and definitely stay again when next visiting the area.

“Gorgeous and relaxing”
Reviewed 12 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Stunning location and wonderful hosts. I would thoroughly recommend staying at Ingestre Lodges. I visited for a friends wedding. I was blown away with how pretty the area was. In the morning there was a gentle clip clopping of horses hooves from the riding school across from my accommodation. I only wish I had more time to take advantage of the area.

“Stunning stable conversion that oozes comfort and class”
Reviewed 28 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

My partner Hilary and I Have just been fortunate enough to spend a weekend in one of the 3 beautiful lodges at Ingestre, adjacent to the hall. Access is through a heavy Iron gate onto a cobbled courtyard, which houses a working riding school, and 3 lodges. The original architecture is amazing, transporting you back to a time long before technology changed the world irrevocably! The main part of these holiday marvels are two converted stable units; "Chetwynd" and Talbot", with a luxury bedroom suite called "Diamond" which bridges them . A small architect office sits beneath this, which is owned by the Owner/ Architect who masterminded this stunning conversion.
Aaron and Anna Chetwynd have created something marvellous here.... These listed stables have been sympathetically and lovingly converted into a space that combines the aesthetics and outward trappings of the original building, and fused it with modern functionality and lavish comfort. The roof is cavernous, allowing the inclusion of a two story pod which contains 3 lovely bedrooms, ( with one being ensuing with a walk in wardrobe) on the lower level. There is a large bathroom servicing this floor and a boiler room which also stores extra things like coats and boots etc. upstairs in the Master suite, also with walk in wardrobe and ensure, and a private galleried sitting area with a mixture of antique and contemporary classic furniture.
it adequately housed 4 couples and gave us space for ourselves as well as to host a similar size group from the other lodge as part of the weekends wedding celebrations.
The lodges are conveniently located around 20 to 30 minutes drive from Staffordshires finest attractions and beautiful market towns. It makes a wonderful base to explore the area, or just a wonderful place to enjoy some quality relaxation time away from it all. And, if like me , you have a love of Art, Architecture and Design; you will find enough to keep you entertained without any of the above!!!

Very highly recommended... Please give this a try!

Thank you for such a tremendous review! I have to say architectural magazines couldn't do a better job of describing the Lodges! It was lovely to have you guys and a real pleasure to know how you appreciated the efforts we went to with the restoration and architecture! Hope you come back very soon and stay longer!

“Fantastic place, highly recommend”
Reviewed 15 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We are the race organisers of IRONMAN 70.3 Staffordshire held at Shugborough Estate. We used Ingestre Lodges as our staff accommodation for the week. It was brilliant and nothing was ever too much.

We very much look forward to returning next year.
