Set within 2 acres of beautiful landscaped gardens, The Old Hall Country House is a traditional 16th-century timber-framed building. With luxury linens and modern bathrooms, the rooms also boast period features.
The spacious rooms are elegantly furnished with 100% Egyptian cotton sheets and a plasma-screen TV. Rooms also feature tea and coffee facilities and Apple TV, and some have wonderful garden views and four-poster beds.
A cooked breakfast is served daily in the charming dining room. There is also a peaceful Orangery lounge, with wicker chairs and views onto the flower gardens. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout, and there is free private parking on site.
The Old Hall is just 45 minutes’ drive from Alton Towers. The M6 is close by, and Crewe town centre can be reached in 20 minutes’ drive. Keele University is less than 10 minutes away by car.
The Old Hall was bought in 2007 by it’s current Owners Simon and Gary White. It was bought as their home, but after spending two years renovating it they decided they wanted to share it with others and set it up as a Luxury Bed and Breakfast. Simon runs the The Old Hall and Gary helps out at weekends.
They have designed the Old Hall so as when you stay you feel like you staying with friends and it’s a very ‘homely’ feel.
A particular feature of the property are the gardens, they are beautiful throughout the year and you can see many pictures of them in the Gallery.
Simon appeared on Channel 4’s ‘Four in a Bed’ programme where B&Bs compete against one another and he’s very proud that we won! More recently Simon and Gary have appeared on Couples Come Dine with Me, showing off their personality and culinary expertise!
They both look forward to meeting you if you decide to stay at The Old Hall Country House.
The Old Hall was built by Lord Crewe around 1530 for one of his Lieutenants John Offley, who subsequently became Sir John Offley and Lord Mayor of London. It is timber and infill brick construction and stands proud in an elevated position in the centre of the Village.The Hall was built in the shape of a cross for religious reasons and is centred by a dominant chimney which is 12 foot square at the base and used to serve 10 fireplaces.
Once John Offley left the Hall, it was tenanted for 400 years as a farmhouse and then extensions were added in Victorian times to include a beautiful Orangery. The Hall stands in two acres of pure gardens, which are a particular feature.
The Hall stayed in Crewe family ownership until the last remaining lord Crewe, who was a bachelor died and it then transferred to the State and became part of the Duchy. It was sold in 1977 to private owners who set about a substantial refurbishment.
In 2007 the current owners Gary and Simon bought the Hall and transformed it to the luxury house you see today.
