Located in the heart of England, less then two hours north of London, Stapleford Park guarantees a warm welcome and has lots to offer from the Clarins Gold Spa, 22metre swimming pool, steam room, and sauna to the 18-hole par 73 Championship golf course, which recently host a PGA European Seniors Tour golf tournament in 2012 and 2011.
The bedrooms are as grand and luxurious as you’d hope. With 48 rooms in total as well as two Cottages, each room is designed to reflect the style of their creators: names such as Mulberry, David Hicks, Sanderson, and Crabtree & Evelyn are all present and correct.
When you’re feeling hungry, you can book a table at the Grinling Gibbons fine dining room. The Head Chef David Ellams could easily be plating up in a top London restaurant if he didn’t enjoy the fresh air so much, and the desserts are simply world-class. Afterwards, you can retreat to the library bar for a coffee complete with petit fours and a brandy to follow, while you settle in by the log fire.
Whether it’s the portraits of former owners or the coats of arms flanking the staircase, you can’t ignore Stapleford Park’s air of noble history. Lords, earls, and dukes of our great country have all had the pleasure of calling Stapleford Park their home. Even King Arthur is rumoured to have stayed here and the house itself can be dated back to the Doomsday Book in 1066, which is no wonder why it is now a Grade 2 listed building. Stapleford Park is truly a place to step back through the history.
From the rows of Wellington boots in the Reception Hall, which are for you to borrow, to the hundreds of antlers hung across the Old Kitchen’s vaulted ceilings, this stately home is a haven for country pursuits. The parkland and gardens play host to archery, falconry, fly-fishing, and shooting. There’s even a croquet lawn at the front of the house.
In this beautiful historic House, you will find the staff to be some of the most attentive and helpful hosts and they will do seemingly anything to make your stay as pleasant as possible. They even take the liberty of learning their guests by name and quickly make you feel right at home.
