After your fill of fresh country air, there is little more welcoming than delicious food in the perfect setting and at Stapleford Park, there is a table for every taste. Perhaps traditional afternoon tea in the quintessentially English Drawing Room, or a tasty, relaxed lunch in the Pavilion adjacent to the golf course, both of which could be fabulous preludes to dining in the sumptuously historic Grinling Gibbons Room.
Dining in the Main House
Stapleford Park’s 2 AA Rosette restaurant offers exceptional dining in exceptional surroundings. Hailed as the most famous woodworker of all time, Dutch master Grinling Gibbons completed intricate carvings in some of Britain's most famous buildings including Hampton Court Palace, Blenheim Palace and St. Paul's Cathedral. The beautiful woodwork above the mantelpiece in the dining room is attributed to Gibbons and is a true feast for the eyes. As are the dishes created by the culinary team who take inspiration from locally sourced ingredients, in a county rich in its food tradition, to create delicious seasonal dishes for even the most discerning palette.
Dining in the Pavilion
Take a seat in the Pavilion overlooking the 18th hole of Stapleford Park’s championship golf course, one of Leicestershire's premier sporting venues. The Pavilion is the perfect place to relax, catch up with friends and have a bite to eat, whether you're a golf aficionado or not, all will enjoy the relaxed and friendly ambience.

Not far from the gated entrance of Stapleford Park sits the 1899 Baroque Revival stable range, at once impressive modelled as it is on those at Buckingham Palace. But therein lies a rather delicious secret: a haven of relaxation and indulgence awaits with signature spa treatments, plus endorphin releasing gym and fitness studio.
Then, perhaps a stroll through the beautiful grounds of Stapleford Park to the main house; a decadent afternoon tea in the relaxed elegance of the Drawing Room or a leisurely sauna, swim and Jacuzzi in the health suite, the choice is yours.
Stapleford Park is more than just a fine golf course. Surrounded by 500 acres of magnificent Capability Brown landscaped grounds, it is the perfect Golf and Spa Hotel and English sporting country estate.
Remarkably free from intrusion, it was designed by the renowned architect Donald Steel and boasts ever-changing views of the House, its lakes and 500-acre park. This is classic English countryside at its very best. The course wraps around the heart of the estate in two extended loops, never being more than two holes wide, making golf here reminiscent of the great links courses.
The legacy of Stapleford Park's fascinating history lives on in local historic market towns such as Melton Mowbray, about 5 miles away, where the idiom 'painting the town red' is said to have derived from. Look out for the Lady Wilton bridge in the Memorial Gardens with its inscription attributing its expense to the Earl of Harborough in 1775.
Country houses and gardens nearby include Althorp; the home of the Spencer family and final resting place of Diana, Princess of Wales. Belton House, now owned by the National Trust, is a beautifully symmetrical Restoration period house which featured in the BBC production of 'Pride and Prejudice'.
The world-famous Burghley horse trials take place in the grounds of Burghley House every September, incorporating show jumping, dressage and cross-country and polo can be enjoyed at the Rutland Polo Club in the nearby village of Langham during the summer.
Set in 3,100 acres of beautiful countryside, Rutland Water is Europe's largest man-made lake and offers all manner of water sports such as wind surfing, sailing, canoeing and fly-fishing and cycling/walking are also popular.
