What makes this Cottage unique
A Brief History of Pudleston Court Pudleston Court, a Grade II listed building, is a prime example of a period during the mid to late 19th century when it was the fashion for successful industrialists of the day to build large country piles as ostentatious and lasting monuments to their achievements. It has seen many changes over the centuries, however, from its initial conception as a residence fit for a well-to-do gentleman of the mid-1800s. Lancashire “coal baron” Elias Chadwick originally commissioned the design and construction of the building in 1846 from Liverpool architect J. T. Brearley, who had produced plans for a lavish Tudor-Gothic style country house to be constructed of coursed pink sandstone, slate roofs and with embattled parapets. The Chadwick family remained in ownership of the estate for several decades. During the Second World War, the house was used by the British Red Cross as a convalescence home for members of the armed forces injured in battle (author James Herriot stayed there). In the 1950s, the house was then converted to use as a local authority special school for children with learning difficulties. Today Pudleston Court is a privately owned country estate.

This was a special bank holiday weekend reunion to celebrate a special occasion for the whole family. The house and location exceeded expectations.We were lucky to have wonderful weather but even without that, the venue would have lent itself to a memorable stay. The facilities are excellent and the staff most helpful. We will certainly return. Whoever is in charge of cleaning and maintenance congratulations!
A wonderful weekend. The accommodation and facilities were perfect!!!!
