This past Saturday I headed out to the last of the very local places I wanted to visit, Wychnor Park Country Club. The bad weather was heading in so I was against the clock before the rain clouds rolled in and the heavens opened. Fortunately, I was up and out early enough to catch the sunshine and I am so glad I did.
Unlike most of the places, I have visited recently I didn’t even know this place existed. Wychnor Hall or Wychnor Park is a Grade II listed early 18th-century country house which was converted to a country club in 1981. The hall is situated south of Barton-under-Needwood between Burton-on-Trent and Lichfield. The easiest way to access the country club is to head north on the A38 and then take the exit to Wychnor. As soon as you come off the A38 you pass over a small bridge over the canal and then it is one single car width road all the way.
The surrounding area is very picturesque with stunning colourful fields and rolling hills. You can see the hall from the road and it is set back behind the 9 hole golf course and the main car park. To the right of the hall, you can see more buildings which are further accommodation and behind the hall is where the cabins are located. As you pass round the left of the hall you notice the hall is at the top of a hill which overlooks fields and a river. Further past the cabins is a wooded area to explore and with the remote location, it is stunningly quiet and peaceful.
This place is the perfect getaway even if you are local and need somewhere to get away for a night or the weekend.
