Hoar Cross Hall also has a Spa:
Hoar Cross Hall is part of the following Inspirations:
"The original Hoar Cross was a moated Tudor hall in Staffordshire’s Needwood Forest with a real, functioning drawbridge. That was demolished in 1740 and in 1793 the owner of the Hoar Cross estate, one Hugo Meynell built himself a hunting lodge on the site. This lodge descended through the Meynell family until 1863 when Hugo’s grandson, Hugo Francis Meynell Ingram decided to build an impressive new Hoar Cross Hall to celebrate his marriage to Lady Charlotte Wood, daughter of the Lord Chancellor.
Given his august in-laws, Meynell Ingram recruited a top Victorian architect, Henry Clutton. Clutton’s specialities were aristocratic houses – he also worked on Cliveden and Grosvenor House in London – especially in historical style.
Clutton came up with a pastiched design that featured 48 chimneys in the Tudor style and a Long Gallery 114 feet long with a private chapel is its east end. There was also a wood-panelled library and dining room off the gallery.
When Meynell Ingram died in 1871 Lady Charlotte built the local church in his memory. She remained in occupation of the hall until her death in 1904 when her nephew inherited the estate. After World War II when the fate of so many of these English country houses hung in the balance because of death duties, the Meynell Ingram family moved to a smaller house in a local village, leaving a caretaker to look after the hall as best he could.
After a long period without occupation the hall was bought in 1989 by Walsall businessman Stephen Joynes. He refurbished it, creating a new health spa in the basement and inviting the likes of Catherine Zeta Jones, Clive Owen, and Robbie Williams to visit and be photographed. In 2012, Hoar Cross became a hotel and in recent years it has undergone a sympathetic refurbishment as part of the Barons Eden Group. The Long Gallery and rooms off it are much closer now to the Hoar Cross that the Meynell Ingrams would have recognised. The spa created by Joynes continues in the basement and is a major lure but the hall itself is looking more like its Victorian self these days."
"The first Hoar Cross Manor was built here during the reign of Henry VI. It was demolished in 1740 and the land sold to Sir Hugo Meynell, the godfather of modern fox-hunting. In 1793 Meynell built a hunting lodge at Hoar Cross and in 1806 his son Hugo spent many years extending it to create the current mock Tudor mansion with its 48 chimneys and Elizabethan-style long gallery. The Meynells spared no expense. Both the plasterwork by George Frederick Bodley and the wallpapers by William Morris are greatly admired today. In 1990 the flamboyant self-made millionaire Steve Joynes restored the hall and converted into a hotel by adding its spa wing."
