Oddfellows has now been given the go ahead to convert Bruntwood Hall in Cheadle into its next boutique hotel.
The brand, which currently consists of one flagship property in Chester, will now transform the 19th century mansion into a 22-bedroom boutique hotel, complete with a restaurant, cocktail bar and private dining rooms.
There are also plans to expand further with the development of a spa facility.
Previously, Bruntwood Hall, set in more than 100 acres, has been used as a town hall, a racehorse stud farm and more recently a filming company.
Oddfellows had been on the lookout for a sister property for more than a year, searching for a hotel with charm, character and a story.
Jonathan Slater of Oddfellows Hotels said: “We are truly excited about the process of sympathetically converting beautiful Bruntwood Hall.
“As with our Chester hotel, the focus will be on restoring the building’s original features, keeping a true sense of history and incorporating the signature touch of playful design that characterises an Oddfellows hotel.”
Tim Groom Architects and SpaceInvader designers, both Manchester firms, are part of the team involved in the project.
He added: “Demand has been very high for our Chester hotel and our guests are always asking if we have any other locations, so as a business, we feel this is the right time to grow and evolve. We are just thrilled to be able to add Bruntwood Hall, which will be known as Oddfellows on the Park, to the family.”
