Swinfen Hall Hotel

Lichfield, Staffordshire


A luxurious Georgian country retreat near historic Lichfield, with champagne, breakfast, a dining discount and optional cream tea

From the moment you take a sip of your chilled champagne in the cocktail lounge, Swinfen Hall starts to live up to your expectations for a blissful break away from the daily grind. The Georgian country house is situated within 100 acres of parkland that has been restored to its former glory with oak, beech and horse chestnut trees, as well as 400 metres of hedgerow, sweeping wild hay meadows and its own herd of deer.

This pretty oasis of tranquility lies just two miles south of the historic city of Lichfield, with its distinctive three-spired cathedral. An AA Inspector's Choice, four Red Star hotel, the restaurant has been awarded two AA Rosettes for the past 11 years and recently secured a third AA Rosette. It was also named 'Fine Dining Restaurant of the Year' at the 2012 and 2014 Taste of Staffordshire Good Food Awards. Explore the menu of sustainably sourced dishes, including vegetables, fruit and herbs from the Victorian walled garden and an expert selection of English cheeses.

With beautiful historical architecture and interior features running throughout, the hotel also offers all the modern luxury and comfort you could hope for. Swinfen Hall also deservedly won the award of 'Small Hotel of the Year' at the Enjoy Staffordshire Tourism Awards 2013.
