Set in five acres of beautiful gardens, with views to the south over a glistening lake, said to be the remains of a medieval moat, you’ll find Mark Birchall’s award-winning, two Michelin star restaurant with seven unique, luxurious bedrooms and The Barn at Moor Hall. What’s more, the gorgeous countryside complex is set to be gaining seven new beautiful garden rooms in spring 2024, each complete with a hot tub and state-of-the-art design.
Moor Hall itself was first recorded in 1282. A grade II* listed gentry house of mid-sixteenth century origin, Moor Hall is one of the most important listed buildings in the UK, acquired by Peter Stanley of Bickerstaffe, who built the present manor house, in 1533.
Launching in spring 2024, each of the new standalone garden rooms will be located in the secluded woodland that engulfs Moor Hall’s surrounding gardens. Designed by KOTO, the new rooms celebrate biophilic living, embracing the dynamic relationship between nature, design, crafted luxury and sustainability.
Moor Hall is located in Aughton, less than an hour’s drive from Manchester and one of Lancashire’s best kept secrets – a quiet but attractive residential area on the outskirts of Ormskirk, well-served by a good variety of shops and cafes. Ormskirk has a popular art gallery with some exciting exhibitions and contemporary collections.
If you fancy getting back to nature on your trip, the Gorse Hill Nature Reserve offers spectacular views over the West Lancashire Plain – alternatively, on the east side of Ormskirk, Ruff Wood is a 19-acre wildlife-spotting haven.
Moor Hall is also situated close to a number of pleasant footpaths and other trails of varying degrees of difficulty. A popular circular walk starts one mile down the road from Moor Hall and lasts for 8.5 miles, taking in part of the Liverpool Leeds Canal.
This incredible location is well and truly perfect for the upcoming cabins to reside in – think beautiful spring walks bookended by soaks in the hot tub, enjoying weekends away knowing the Moor Hall garden rooms are striving for ultimate sustainability, allowing guests to truly be at one with nature.
