    Oddfellows On The Park is born from a meticulous renovation of Bruntwood Hall, a 19th-century Victorian mansion just south of Manchester, United Kingdom. Set in Cheadle’s Bruntwood Park—consisting of 100 acres of mature oak trees, woodlands, ponds, and lawns—the hotel not only offers an idyllic English manor retreat, but is only 15 kilometers from the center of Manchester, home to arguably the UK’s most hippest cultural and commercial corners. As well as offering on-site activities, such as archery, golf, and a BMX cycling track, the hotel houses a restaurant in the Hall’s old ballroom; a wood-paneled cocktail bar clad in tweed and tartan, with the building’s original safe as a tableand a spa called The Pigsty, with a “mudroom” to pamper guests. The rooms and suites—with views of the surrounding parkland—each boast a unique design, many with original Victorian fireplaces, ceilings, and architraves that contrast boldly with the playful design pieces throughout the property.

    Architecture

    Tim Groom Architects

    In the restoration of Bruntwood Hall, Tim Groom Architects employed a “minimal intervention” approach to create Oddfellows On The Park. “The building is Gothic Revival and is in superb condition—it was always our intention to let the style show itself off,” Groom explains. Housed in a 19th-century Victorian mansion, the hotel promises guests a dose of quintessential British luxury characterized by a galleried staircase, Jacobian-style ceilings, and a stained-glass roof light.

    “Though many features in the hotel may seem odd at first glance, everything is odd for a reason and has a story behind it,” explains Katie Crossley of SpaceInvader. Thanks to dashes of loud color and quirky design, guests will find unexpected talking pieces at every turn. One such highlight is the Gothic-style chandelier made from bicycle chains in the reception area.

    The challenge for Manchester’s SpaceInvader studio was to keep the architect’s “minimal intervention” approach in mind while simultaneously bringing the interior’s aristocratic aura up to date.

    Jonathan Slater

    Jonathan Slater is a seasoned veteran of the luxury hospitality world, having run the nearby Chester Grosvenor hotel for three decades and founding the Small Luxury Hotels company that represents 500 independent hotels across over 70 countries. Specializing in restorations, Slater felt that the chance to turn Bruntwood Hall into Oddfellows On The Park was an opportunity not to be missed.  “We’ve always stuck to the idea of a restoration rather than a conversion. We fell in love with the original features and the fantastic room dimensions—we don’t want to change what is already, in our eyes, close to perfection.”
