Staffordshire’s best kept secret, a hidden gem, a magical hideaway…. Dunwood Hall really is a dream come true. Dunwood Hall oozes character and charm in not only architecture but also in the history of its occupants. Interested to learn a little bit more about Dunwood Hall? Here is a little bit of history……

Dunwood Hall History

Built in 1871, by a Victorian gentleman Thomas Hulme, a rich and prosperous landowner of the time Dunwood Hall is a remarkable representation of period architecture and features.

In the Victorian era events were regular occurrences – think Downton Abbey! Though primarily a family home it was built with socialising in mind, lending itself perfectly to such times. With wedding and events taking place since it was built it became known across the county as the place to be!

Once you arrive at Dunwood it isn’t hard to take yourself back to that time – imagine courting in the gardens, arriving in a carriage, musicians in the gallery, maybe even a butler at the door!

Delphine’s grandmother, Ruth, fell in love with Dunwood Hall in 1963 and lovingly restored and cared for it. Known as a romantic, she had a vision for the hall, to continue to share Dunwood with others so that they too can enjoy its ambience and atmosphere, and marvel at its beauty and splendour. It is with the same passion that Delphine, two generations on, is delighted to continue with this ethos and open her home for weddings and events.

Dunwood Hall Today

Dunwood Hall is still a family home and is currently lived in by 5 members of the family, not forgetting the all important 3 dogs –  making it 8! Dunwood Hall bustles with life, it’s a busy place to be….as you arrive you will sense that this is a home that is lived in, loved and cared for, giving it that warm welcoming and unique feel.

The family love to share their home and feel that the magic of weddings really brings it to life! They fell in love with Dunwood Hall many moons ago….and if you fall in love with it…. it can be your home for the day too!
