Cava and chocolates tour in partnership with Melt Chocolates

Pitchford Hall is a large Grade I listed Tudor country house, built around 1560 on the site of a medieval building. It has been modified several times since, particularly in the 1870s and 1880s when it was substantially restored, remodelled and extended.

Described as Britain’s finest half-timbered house, Pitchford Hall was owned by the Colthurst family for more than 500 years before being sold in 1992. Now on the ‘at Risk’ register, the house has been bought back by Rowena Colthurst and her husband, who are embarking on the massive task of saving it, following 25 years of neglect. The house is named after a natural pitch well in the grounds. Prince Rupert hid from the Roundheads in the priest-hole here during the Civil War and Princess (later Queen) Victoria played in the Tudor-style treehouse.

The tour includes the main rooms on the ground floor including the great hall and drawing room. Also the Priest Hole Room and Princess Victoria Room. We sometimes include the Victorian kitchen, unrestored Victorian wing and the General’s Quarters (west wing) and the attic in the tour.

Refreshments: Cava and chocolates by Melt - award-winning handmade luxury chocolate, made using the finest and freshest ingredients, handcrafted by London’s world-class chocolatiers.
