The Orangery at Rushton Hall
We are pleased to announce that our new Orangery will be opening here at Rushton Hall in 2017.
The first of its kind within the Midlands, Rushton Hall’s new Orangery will be the perfect venue for weddings, conferences and events and will be able to cater for up to 300 people. To keep in style with the Grade I listed building, architects specialising in listed buildings helped with the design and style. With five stages of construction, the luxury hotel is using stone to ensure that the Orangery fits with the look and feel of the rest of the beautiful historic stately home. The Orangery went through several planning processes, including having to be approved by Historic England, due to Rushton’s rich history.
Dr Dale Dishon Historic England’s Principal Inspector of Historic Buildings & Areas said,
‘Historic England was pleased to support the planning proposals for the Orangery function suite at Rushton Hall. We had significant input into the design process at the pre-application stage, and felt that the owners and their project team had achieved a high-quality design for the new building, while protecting and enhancing the significance of Grade I listed Rushton Hall. We look forward to seeing the new building materialise on site.’
Rushton Hall was originally built in 1438 and Thomas Tresham put the front gallery on to complete the building in 1600. Further alterations and additions have been made in later years.
