Book your stay

Walnut House

A home away from home with cosy and luxurious bedrooms in the beautiful Staffordshire countryside.

The concept is a ‘pub with rooms’, where you can enjoy seriously delicious food and stay in a really cosy room with a rural backdrop of beautiful Staffordshire. We want you to feel you’re at home, which is why we’ve designed our rooms with every luxury in mind, but they’re also cosy and comfortable to encourage guests to relax and unwind.

‘Walnut House’ is a few paces from The Duncombe Arms, and has ten unique bedrooms overlooking The Dove Valley. The guest bedrooms have all the home-from-home comfort that you’d expect from a country pub, but with the added details of a boutique hotel and stylish country-chic design.

Check-in is from 4pm and we serve breakfast 8am - 9.30am Monday to Friday and 8.30am - 10am on Saturday and Sunday. Please book breakfast times on arrival at the pub. Check-out is 10am. 

Please note - if you would like to bring your dog, there is a £25 surcharge. Please let us know in advance so we can allocate an appropriate room.


The Rooms

Each room is decorated with different artisan wallpapers and high quality fabrics, and kitted out with sumptuous armchairs, a writing desk, a Roberts Radio and homemade biscuits from the kitchen. The Crane Kalman Gallery of London has curated our art collection displayed on the walls, adding to the uniqueness of each room, and paintings are available for guests to purchase.

We have two family rooms, each with a sofa bed, shower and bath; and four large double rooms with showers, and four large doubles with baths and showers. Our bathrooms are stocked with handmade Bamford products.
