We pride ourselves on using only the best quality, locally sourced produce to create first class working breakfasts, lunches or light bites throughout the day.

Overnight guests are treated to an infinite choice of mouthwatering breakfast dishes, be it the ‘full English’ or dietary variations such as vegetarian, weight watchers, diabetic, or perhaps a Staffordshire speciality. Meals are usually served in the dining room but in warmer weather can be taken on the deck overlooking woodland and flower borders.

Our Locality

Accurate directions integrated with Google maps will bring you to the entrance of the Retreat. A short drive through the woodland will reveal the extent of our ‘special’ location where you will find plenty of secure, free parking, right outside the front door.

You will also find historic pubs, restaurants and speciality shops within walking distance, or take the opportunity to visit the Branston Golf Club or walk the footpaths of the Dunstall Estate from our own private access.
