ABOU­TIQUE ho­tel will be de­vel­oped in an his­toric hall.

Company Oddfel­lows, which al­ready runs a ho­tel in Ch­ester, has bought Brunt­wood Hall in Chea­dle.

It sits in the heart of Brunt­wood Park, which the Manch­ester de­vel­oper is named after.

The firm wants to de­velop a lux­ury venue in the hall, which will have around 23 rooms, with a bar, restau­rant, spa treat­ment rooms and a ‘dra­matic’ event space.

It will be called Oddfel­lows On The Park and the project is in the hands of ar­chi­tect Tim Groom.

It is hoped the ho­tel will open next sum­mer and will lead to the cre­ation of around 70 jobs.

Sarah Dougherty, from Oddfel­lows, said: “It had to be a prop­erty with character.

“Oddfel­lows is well known for its quirky de­sign spin on a beau­ti­ful pe­riod prop­erty – and we wanted our sec­ond prop­erty to do the same.

“We love adding vi­brancy to a pe­riod prop­erty that has lost its lus­tre, but still re­tains all of its charm. This beau­ti­ful man­sion had ev­ery­thing we were look­ing for.”

Brunt­wood Hall’s pre­vi­ous uses in­clude a town hall, race­horse stud farm and, more re­cently, be­ing used by a film company.

The wider Brunt­wood Park has more than 100 acres of park­land, which in­cludes ponds, wa­ter­ways and ma­ture wood­lands.
