This 16th-century property was built by the Earl and Countess of Shrewsbury; the latter the redoubtable Bess of Hardwick who was responsible for the prodigy houses of Hardwick Hall and Chatsworth.
As high society figures with royal connections the couple quickly turned the hall into one of the region’s most popular destinations. It notably provided accommodation for Mary Queen of Scots (kept there under house arrest by her nemesis Elizabeth I), and has been said that within its ancient rooms England’s future was plotted more so than in London! Book a stay at the hotel to experience the atmosphere of this incredible venue for yourself.
