Steeped in over 650 years of true British history its story begins after John Attwood acquired a formal license in 1362 to enclose 600 acres of land at Kidderminster and Wolverley.
What has become known as the Park Attwood Estate stayed within the Attwood family for nearly 450 years; thereafter the deeds were bought by Henry Chillingworth of Holt Castle whose family remained incumbent until just before the outbreak of the First World War, where the manor's new master, Thomas Hessin-Charles decided the site would become a hotel. Unsurprisingly during WW2 it became a billet for the Royal Corps of Signals. In more recent times Park Attwood has been a versatile setting, firstly as a Country Club, then Therapeutic Clinic and most recently a Rehabillitation Centre.
Opportunities such as this are extremely rare to the market and genuine enquiries should be made at the earliest opportunity.
Park Attwood offers the best of both worlds, set in the most breathtaking, peaceful and salubrious settings where you feel like you've truly got away from it all and yet close enough should you need to commute.
