Review: Oddfellows On The Park, UK

Your perfect ‘countryside’ getaway is closer than you think

What is Oddfellows On The Park?

Inspired by a society for the ODD fellows – those who aren’t afraid to stand out from the crow – this luxury boutique hotel is bursting with quirky character and is set in the gorgeous grounds of Bruntwood Park. Oddfellows restored Bruntwood Hall with its history in mind: playful décor nods to the building’s past with paintings of drinking ducks and a huge horse statue that echoes the Hall’s time as a private equestrian centre.

The Buzz

A kooky bunch ourselves, the A-Mag team headed to Oddfellows to see if we really felt like we were on a countryside break just nine miles away from Manchester’s city centre.

Best For

Couples looking to escape the city without actually having to leave the city at all. Get the beauty and relaxation of the Lakes without the long drive. Enjoy the fresh air with a stroll in Bruntwood Park, then jump in a taxi for the hustle and bustle of Cheadle high street or the buzzing bars of Alderley Edge.

Make sure you save time for a roll around in The Pigsty too – Oddfellows’ salon and spa that is. Their cleansing mud treatment will revive your skin, leaving you glowing from head to toe.

Where to Eat

Named after the Hall’s second owner, the intimate Galloping Major restaurant is set in the Hall’s original ballroom: a gorgeous room in which to tuck into some top-notch food and sip on one of Oddfellows’ great wines with your other half.

What To Order

Head Chef, Ian Moss, and his team mean serious business with Oddfellows’ signature sense of fun found in their seasonal dishes too. Try their quirky take on risotto which replaces rice with squid, and the venison loin with hazelnut milk puree, Jerusalem artichokes, and wild mushrooms.

The Verdict

Turns out your luxury ‘countryside’ break is only ten minutes away thanks to Oddfellows On The Park. We’re over the stuffy and serious – Oddfellows prove that you can get the grandeur of a historic mansion along with a sense of playfulness and first-class service too. We can’t wait to check out the next Oddfellows venture!
