Shropshire staycation

Effortless luxury in the Shropshire countryside Myself and wife Alison had the pleasure of visiting the Hawkstone Park Hotel as part of a birthday treat. The established boutique hotel is undergoing a £3 million facelift: the new golf centre is still underway, but the new restaurant and guest rooms are finished, and absolutely stunning. The hotel was built in the 1790s as a house for the Hill family and is set in 400 acres of English Heritage-listed landscape in the north Shropshire countryside. It is also a golf-lover’s dream, thanks to two 18-hole championship courses, while sleek, modern rooms and quality dining will appeal to couples seeking a short break. We enjoyed a three-course meal within the 1792 Bar and Grill offering quality dining, something as inviting to couples as it is to golfing guests. We were greeted by polite and attentive staff, eager to ensure guests were pleased with their service.

The fabulously appointed Hawkstone Park Hotel is also a golf-lovers dream with two championship courses

We both started with delicious mushroom and thyme soup served with fresh, warm bread. For the main Alison enjoyed an 8oz local sirloin, hand cut chips, BBQ mushrooms, confit cherry tomato and tobacco onions. For myself; a filet of cod, rarebit, caramelised shallots, sweet potato mash, confit tomatoes with a red wine sauce.

We found the stylish restaurant full of a mix of hotel guests. A large golfing party enjoying their evening dinner and couples smiling happily during intimate evenings out.

There were plenty of desserts to choose from: Alison opted for sticky toffee pudding and for me; a vanilla crème brûlée with homemade shortbread biscuit. From the extensive wine list, we enjoyed a bottle of Parini Pinot Grigio.

The menu listed mouth-watering dishes including steaks, duck, lamb, pork and salmon alongside ample vegetarian options.

We stayed in the new superior suite which had everything we could have wished for, including a fully stocked mini bar.

Breakfast consisted of a plentiful buffet-style full English breakfast with tea, coffee and toast. In all a wonderful venue and we look forward to visiting again soon.
