In a peaceful, rural location, this country house was originally built in 1845. Today, the house has been converted into a luxurious privately owned hotel with many beautiful original features.
The Upper House is a former Wedgwood residence, built for Josiah Wedgwood's grandson, Francis Wedgwood. The house still retains its original charm, with extensive antique decoration and traditional character.
There are 24 rooms, all with private bathrooms, TVs, telephones, tea/coffee making facilities and hairdryers. Some of the rooms have balconies and although there is no smoking in the house, smoking is permitted on the balconies.
Free Wi-Fi wireless internet access is available throughout the hotel.
A full English breakfast is included in the price.
There are 2 comfortable lounges and in the chillier winter months, guests can relax by the real log fire. There is also a patio area and a conservatory at the rear of the hotel, both overlooking the beautiful gardens.
An elevator serves all floors.
The Upper House has a quiet, restful location, but is just a few miles south of Stoke-on-Trent, within easy reach of route A50, highway M6 and the region’s major road network.
Free on-site parking is available for guests.
