How to find us

Sleeping accommodation at Ingestre Hall ranges from a very limited number of single ensuite rooms to twin rooms and rooms for three, four and up to 10 people.

We can offer a limited amount of upgraded single and double room accommodation at nearby Ingestre Lodges.

For students who prefer greater privacy it is possible to camp on the lawns adjacent to the Hall. The cost for this is the same as for accommodation in one of the larger shared rooms.

Most rooms do not have ensuite facilities but there is an ample number of showers and bathrooms close to the dormitories and bedrooms.

Please note that, as a Residential Arts Centre rather than a hotel, Ingestre Hall does not supply toiletries or towels so residents need to bring their own,

There is also the option of registering as a day student. Day students arrive after breakfast for the start of each day's activities and are then eligible to take part in any courses and evening events with full use of all facilities and including lunch, evening meal and break-time refreshments.

Ingestre Hall has a lift allowing access to the mezzanine floor for wheelchair users and those with mobility problems.

Ingestre Hall is a Grade II* 17th-century Jacobean mansion situated at Ingestre, near Stafford, Staffordshire, England. Formerly the seat of the Earls Talbot and then the Earls of Shrewsbury, the hall is now owned by Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council and is in use as a Residential Arts and Conference Centre.

Ingestre is mentioned in the Domesday Book. During the reign of Henry II the manor was owned by the de Mutton family. During the reign of Edward III the house passed to the Chetwynd family, through the marriage of heiress Isabel de Mutton and Sir John Chetwynd. Their descendants were raised to the peerage in 1733 as Baron Talbot and later in the century as Earl Talbot.

Ingestre Hall projects its aims to "extend the legacy of Ingestre Arts to be nationally recognised as a centre of excellence where children and young people’s horizons are broadened and where they are inspired and motivated to achieve their full potential in an aspirational environment where creativity and sense of self is valued and encouraged to blossom".
