Top 10 Places for Fun Dining by Adrian Mourby

"Food is one of many pleasures to be had at Ettington Park near Stratford Upon Avon. There’s also a helicopter pad if you want to land in style and if you’re very lucky you may get to stay in the Victorian Garden Suite or the Shakespeare Suite, both of which overlook the picturesque ruins of Ettington’s church. But all guests to take tea in the Great Drawing Room or dinner in the Oak Room Restaurant. Or indeed breakfast in the book-lined Library with its Strawberry Hill Gothic chimney place copied from Windsor Castle, plus a secret butler’s door, disguised as library shelving so servants can come and go unseen.

Dinner in the 2 AA Rosette Oak Restaurant means being surrounded by panels of beautiful inlaid coats of arms. When the Shirley family gave Ettington Park its neo-gothic makeover in the early nineteenth century the coats of arms of all the families who had married into the Shirleys were used as decorative motifs. Given that the Shirleys of Ettington had been in situ since time Norman Conquest it’s not surprising so many noble in-laws are thus commemorated.

The menu makes good use of local products and is littered with local dishes like Cotswold Lamb and Cotswold Blue Cheesecake. The wine list has an attractive range of French and New World wines but also a red, Raccolto A Mano Rosso and white, Terre Forti Trebbiano Chardonnay that are made at Villa Saletta in Tuscany which, like Ettington Park is owned by Hand Picked Hotels.

Ettington is also a splendid place to work up a healthy appetite for all that food. There’s a “Kingfisher Walk” following the River Stour as it flows through the park’s 40-acre grounds. And longer walking routes available on sheets of A4 from reception. Wellington boots for the adventurous are also to be found at reception and there are bicycles available if you want to go further afield. But in good weather it’s also just pleasant to sit on the terrace and watch the park’s herd of deer keeping their distance.

10 Hotels to Live Like a Lord in 2019 by Adrian Mourby

"Ettington Park is a neo-Gothic mansion just six miles from Stratford-upon-Avon. Today it is run by Handpicked Hotels but its lordly story can be traced through the Shirley family all the way back to the Domesday Book. In 1086 William the Conqueror’s surveyors recorded that the Manor of Ettington was held by one Sewallis, a Saxon thane who had made his peace with the Normans. Over many centuries Sewallis’s family became the Shirleys of Warwickshire. Sir Ralph Shirley aided King Edward I in his conquests of Wales and Scotland. He was instrumental in the defeat of the Welsh prince Llewelyn and the capture and execution of the Scottish leader William “Braveheart” Wallace. He received his knighthood after the English victory at Falkirk in 1290. Sir Ralph died in 1327 and today his tomb can be seen in the family chapel that has been fashioned out of a ruined church that stands in the grounds. Sir Ralph’s descendants rebuilt Ettington on a number of occasions, in 1641,1740 and 1767. Then in 1820 as neo-Gothic became fashionable both in architecture and art a new chimney place was added to Ettington’s library that was a copy of one at Windsor Castle. A stained-glass window was brought from an old chapel in Chipping Camden and placed over it to enhance the mediaeval ambience. Finally, in 1858, Evelyn Philip Shirley brought in the Puginist architect John Prichard. Prichard’s team worked for four years to turn Ettington into the neo-Gothic brick mansion we see today. Evelyn Philip Shirley died in 1882. His son Sewallis was the last member of the family to live at Ettington. After his death in 1912, the house was leased to the Duchess of Westminster. Like so many English country houses Ettington was commandeered during World War II, serving as a POW camp for captured Italian soldiers. And like so many country houses it also suffered a major fire. This one was in 1979 and did a lot of damage. Ettington remained empty until 1983 when the lengthy business of turning the Shirley’s ancestral home into a hotel began. Its neo-Gothic dining room, now the Oak Room Restaurant, is lined with wood panelling which displays the coats of arms of the many families into which the Shirleys married over the centuries. It is very easy to feel close to the Shirley family and their thousand-year history while staying at this stirringly historic hotel."

Our pick of the best UK literary festivals by Dinah Hatch

"The grown-up one: The Stratford Literary Festival, Stratford Upon Avon, April 24 –May1. Now in its ninth year, Stratford really packs a punch with the literary heavyweights but the festival is just as known for its eclectic performer choices. For instance, this year sees Brooklyn rapper Devon Glover AKA The Sonnet Man attempt to recite all of Shakespeare’s 154 sonnets non-stop in hip hop speak (dontchaknow) while elsewhere on site actor Martin Jarvis and his wife Rosalind Ayres join composer Richard Sisson to celebrate the life of Beatrix Potter. Presenter Chris Packham will launch his memoirs, debut author and Costa First Novel winner Andrew Michael Hurley will talk about his novel The Loney and Joanna Cannon will debate her bestseller The Trouble With Goats and Sheep. You’ll also hear from former Blue Peter presenter Janet Ellis who will discuss her novel The Butcher’s Hook. Book your accommodation early as Stratford always fills quickly. Treat yourself with a stay at the utterly luxurious neo-Gothic Ettington Park, five miles from the centre. With 40 acres of parkland, vaulted ceilings, stained glass windows and divine dinners in the Oak Room, it tops off a perfect literary day."

Ten great hotels near the best summer festivals this year by Adrian Mourby

"Stratford Upon Avon is world-famous for its Royal Shakespeare Company but it also supports a wonderful autumn music festival (10-24 October). The festivals motto is “Early Music to the Present Day performed by Music Legends to Names of the Future”. This year guest artists include BBC Young Musician of the Year Laura van der Heijden, Eboracum Baroque, and the Midland Youth Jazz Orchestra. The lunchtime concerts held in Stratford upon Avon Town Hall offer a complementary glass of sherry and there are good free “Buy-A-Beer” music events in many of Stratford pubs. Ettingham Park stands six miles outside of Stratford and has been the family home of the Shirley family for centuries. Not only is it famous for its ghosts, but has its own Shakespeare connection. One of the tenants of Ettingham, the Underhill family, sold the Great House in New Place to a certain William Shakespeare when he returned to Stratford with his earnings from The Globe."

Hotels for the half term to please the whole family by Dinah Hatch

"Stratford Upon Avon can be ludicrously busy at the best of times but the smart money stays just outside for a piece of Warwickshire country tranquillity. Ettington Park sits just a few miles from the Bard’s home town surrounded by 40 acres of parkland with the River Stour running through it. Honey coloured stones, stunning brickwork and ornate arches set the tone here and inside the grandeur continues with elegant chandeliers, antique furniture and lovely wall art. I love the perfect blending of heritage architecture with 21st century facilities here, and the indoor pool, sauna, steam rooms and Jacuzzi are perfect places to relax after the madness of Stratford. There’s a great butterfly farm at Swans Nest for the kids too."

Top Ten Historic Hotels in the Midlands by Adrian Mourby

"The Shirley family have been lords of the manor since the Domesday Book and Ettington Park was their neo-Gothic home in the 19th-century. Before being turned into a hotel, Ettington featured in the 1963 horror movie The Haunting. Its variegated stonework, ogee windows, panelled library and tall roofline make it a perfect – if slightly sinister - example of Victorian domestic architecture."
