Stapleford Park Country House Hotel & Spa

A Stay in Great British Style and 238 years in the making.

A hotel stay should always come with pampering included, and Stapleford Park offers luxury on a grand scale, with guests experiencing the opulence its residents enjoyed for centuries.

From the Sherard family, who called the estate home for nearly 500 years and became Earls of Harborough, to the Barons Gretton, a title bestowed upon John Gretton in 1944, this Grade I listed country house has always attracted an upmarket crowd.

As time passed and the house was reshaped by Jacobean and Victorian architectural styles, it not only welcomed members of the Royal Family including George VI and Edward VIII, but, as a hotel, pop royalty and movie legends. Michael Jackson, Mariah Carey, Raquel Welch and Faye Dunaway have all witnessed its splendour.

During your stay, you too can enjoy the finer things in life. Luxury rooms feature classic British flourishes by Mulberry and Wedgwood, and 2 AA Rosette restaurant The Grinling Gibbons displays carvings by this legendary craftsman. Afternoon Tea is served in the sumptuous Drawing Room, and the elegant spa is set within Victorian stables modelled on those at Buckingham Palace.

Outside, wander 500 spectacular acres of grounds shaped by Capability Brown, one of the greatest names in English landscape gardening, and peek inside the 18th century St Mary Magdalene Church, where former England striker Peter Crouch tied the knot.

Twice a year, in summer, visitors can ride the Stapleford Miniature Railway. This Gretton family legacy hit TV screens in 1965 with Emma Peel tied to the tracks and rescued by English Gentleman spy John Steed in an episode of cult show ‘The Avengers’.

No experience as lord or lady of the manor is complete without a traditional country pursuit or two. With falconry, clay pigeon shooting, archery and croquet just some of the activities available, Stapleford Park is at your service.
