Located in the heart of rural Staffordshire, The Tawny Hotel provides an experience like no other. Set within the 70-acre grounds of the wonderfully restored wild garden of Consall Hall Estate, guests can discover woodland, stroll through lakeside gardens, find peace in secluded fells and delight in enchanting follies.
The hotel launched in 2021 with 55 immaculately designed Shepherds Huts, Treehouses, Boathouses, Retreats and the Lookout. Six Hillside Treehouse were added in May 2022, with a further eight new Retreats to open during the course of the year. Each accommodation has been inspired by its surroundings and features sympathetic design aesthetics, accented by luxurious touches that intertwine with the natural environment.
“A good night’s sleep is central to every guest experience, and whilst comfort will always be key to delivering this, we are thrilled that wellbeing and sustainability are increasingly influencing consumer choice and how they view their experience,” said Carolyn Mitchell, Sales and Marketing Director, Hypnos Contract Beds. “As a family owned business, we believe it is essential we leave a lasting legacy for future generations, so are delighted to support The Tawny to deliver comfort with integrity”.
The Lookout, maximises the extraordinary view across the lakes and valley of the estate and can accommodate between two-six guests, offering accessible access as well as a freestanding bathtub and private deck with an outdoor spa bath and shower. The joyful, nature-inspired Treehouses are lofty and playful and look out across the rolling landscape. They can house up to six and play host to a freestanding Barcelona bathtub, private deck and outdoor spa bath.
“The Tawny is the UK’s first deconstructed hotel,” said Josh Chadwick, The Tawny General Manager. “We’ve taken all the best bits from a traditional luxury hotel experience and combined them with your own private space, a country escape to call your own for the duration of your stay. Our guests want to relax in nature’s embrace but don’t want to compromise on their well-deserved creature comforts. A great night’s sleep is fundamental to our guests’ wellbeing and choosing a bed of exceptional quality was never up for debate.”
Considered design is present throughout the project, the cabins have been discretely and sensitively placed in harmony with the rolling landscape and with care given to ensure the ecology of this very special estate continues to thrive. The project aims to be an exemplary showcase of responsible and sustainable tourism and this shines through all elements, be it the wood cladding used on the cabin exteriors, the foundations engineered to not harm the tree roots.
