Relax and enjoy some Northern hospitality; our team have big smiles and even bigger hearts and we're all about making sure you have an absolutely wonderful time at The Tawny.

Take A Stroll

Step out of your room and onto the estate's pathways for a relaxing meander through woodland, around lakes, into untamed bushland and wetland before heading back to stunning gardens with sensational views.

If you fancy exploring beyond the estate, we border Consall Nature Park which has four waymarked walking trails to try. You'll find two large ponds, streams, easy woodland trails and a more challenging climb to Kingsley Banks where there are wonderful views over the Churnet Valley. The nature park is a wildlife haven, with birds including Redstart, Pied Flycatcher, Woodcock and Tree Pipit. Also look out for grass snakes, butterflies and dragonflies around the peaceful pools.

Bring The Dog

Dogs are part of the family and you don't need to worry about leaving yours at home when staying at The Tawny.

Dogs are welcome to stay in our Glade Huts, Valley Treehouses and Lookouts, please use the link below for full details and restrictions.

You can look forward to a leisurely stroll through the incredible gardens of The Tawny with your furry friend, exploring diverse terrains from wooded hilltops to lakeside lowlands. Explore over 5 miles of meandering pathways around the 70 acres of lakes, woodlands and follies located on the grounds.

If you get a little peckish you can wander up to the alfresco dining tables positioned outside The Plumicorn and enjoy a drink on the upper terrace.

Treat Yourself

Let your mind drift and your tensions ebb away as our specialist wellness team soothe body and mind.

Our serene treatment room is located within the thatched cottage that was originally built as a writer's escape; it enjoys an absolutely stunning view across the valley. Make time during your stay to enjoy one of the carefully curated treatments, available Monday – Saturday.
