The Himley House Hotel
Set in a landscape sculpted by Capability Brown, the Grade II listed Himley House is a splendid Georgian hotel, the former lodge house for the 18th century Staffordshire mansion of Himley Hall, once home to the Lords of Dudley. With extensive landscaped grounds bordering a lake, and attractive interior features including a spiral staircase and four-poster bedrooms, The Himley House is the perfect hotel for a relaxing break or special occasion.
Himley is a small rural village with some local amenities, historic Dudley and Stourbridge are less than 5 miles away and bustling Wolverhampton is a 15 minute drive. The beautiful Severn Valley and its Heritage Railway, Dudley Zoo & Castle and the Black Country Living Museum are all within easy reach. Himley Park, just next door to the Hotel, is the perfect place to stroll in the 180 acres of public grounds, landscaped by Lancelot Capability Brown in the 18th century. The Park includes the Great Pool, waterfalls and an ice house.
The ideal hotel for business in the Black Country
Central Birmingham is only 15 miles away, and the West Midlands towns of Wolverhampton, West Bromwich and Halesowen are all within easy reach, making The Himley House a very attractive hotel base for doing business in the Black Country. The M5 motorway can be accessed at Junction 2 in just 20 minutes, for those working further afield. Yet despite being within easy reach of the main West Midlands towns and cities, The Himley House Hotel in rural Himley feels a world away from all things work-related.
A perfect hotel base for exploring the West Midlands
If you’re planning a more leisurely break, The Himley House Hotel is ideally located for a wealth of historic West Midland attractions and scenic Severn Valley countryside. The ruins of Dudley Castle, overlooking the Zoo and town, and the fascinating Black Country Living Museum are only 15 minutes away, and there is no better introduction to the unspoilt Severn Valley than to take the steam train from Bridgnorth, a 13 mile journey from Himley. Retail therapy is just 15 minutes away at Merry Hill Shopping Centre. Whatever your plans, The Himley House Hotel is perfect for exploring the West Midlands, Staffordshire and Worcestershire.
