CLIENT: CHRISTOPHER AND CLAIRE MCINTOSH, OWNERS
The Tewkesbury Park Hotel can trace its story back to the great-grandson of Edward I, who established a hunting lodge on the site in the 14th Century. The lodge would have been a fine vantage point for the Battle of Tewkesbury in 1471 between the House of Lancaster and the House of York - one of the deciding battles in the War of the Roses.
The heart of the hotel today is an 18th Century manor house that has been sympathetically converted to offer 85 bedrooms and 9 suites. The suites are names after the main protagonists in the Wars of the Roses: King Richard, King Edward, the Duke of Somerset, the Prince of Wales, Lord Wenlock, Margaret of Anjou, Lord Hastings, the Marquess of Dorset and the Earl of Devon.
Each suite has beautiful bay windows overlooking the Frank Perrick-designed golf course and are sumptuously designed throughout with Art Deco styling, high quality furniture and fittings. Perrin & Rowe’s Traditional brassware collection has a 1930s feel that perfectly complemented the look the owners wanted to achieve.
The hotel was bought by the McIntosh family in 2014, and every penny invested is the family’s own. Quality and durability were paramount in specification decisions. Only Perrin & Rowe offered the balance of design, style and quality for this most historic and luxurious of venues.
