Hotel plan for historic hall
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.
