Kinver Edge Rock Houses

With sweeping views, a wildlife haven in the heath and unique homes carved straight into the rock...Kinver Edge is full of surprises. The famous Holy Austin Rock Houses are cosily restored to help you soak up the atmosphere of these unusual homes. Get comfortable by the fire and our volunteers will tell you tales of the people that lived right inside the rock. Just outside is the heathland of Kinver Edge - a pocket of Wilderness, buzzing with insects and heady with the scent of gorse and purple heather. A stroll along the sandstone ridge offers dramatic views across surrounding counties from the ramparts of an imposing Iron Age Hill Fort. Beyond the views miles of walking country awaits, winding through birch and oak woodland and exposed areas of red sandstone geology.

We visited Kinver Edge to take the dog for a walk. What a lovely area with great views and scenery. The Rock Houses were closed and due to reopen 17th February. We will definitely return in the summer and try out the tea room. Worth a visit.

This is a great place for all ages to enjoy a day out. Plenty of green spaces, an amazing children's play area, nice size lake with lots of fishes and all sorts of birds, swans, ducks and geese. Park has a tea house where you can have a drink but also get some free birds food! Its great for dog walk and its never too crowded. You can also enjoy delicious ice cream from a regular Ice cream van. There is also a beautiful monument telling an important history. I love this place.

Hagley Hall

Hagley Hall and Park are among the supreme achievements of eighteenth-century English architecture and landscape gardening. They remain largely the creation of one man, George, 1st Lord Lyttelton, landscaped the grounds in the new ‘picturesque’ style and who was responsible for the building of the house as it is seen today. There has been a park at Hagley since the reign of Edward III but the present outstanding landscape was created between 1747 and 1758 with follies designed by Lord Camelford and Sanderson Miller amongst others. Home to Lord & Lady Cobham, Hagley Hall, last of the great Palladian houses, with its rich Rococo decoration and surrounded by 350 acres of picturesque parkland, is a remarkable tribute to the artistic achievements of the great eighteenth-century amateurs, offering a splendid and unique venue for your wedding day or corporate event. We are open for public tours from January to March each year.

The house has much to offer, including a delightful lunch on arrival . Unfortunately a party was taking place in the following day so much of the house was in a state of flux with dining tables covering much of the area and furniture pushed in to corners . The family history provided a challenging maize through which we were taken via a walking tour illustrated by family portraits . A delightful guide whose anecdotes built up over 23 years put some flesh on the bones but still it proved to be a challenge .
I would recommend a tour but check in advance whether the house is in a truly suitable state for paying guests . For instance there were few seats available for many of the visitors who were mature of age or in-firmed.

Green Duck Brewery Company

Reviewed By LordLucan2010 - Birmingham, United Kingdom

This has been a micro brewery for a couple of years on a local industrial estate although the small, unassuming front door painted green is on the main road. Inside it shows off its industrial heritage proudly and tastefully.
We attended the Gin Festival recently and were very impressed by the organisation and general convivial atmosphere. Entry tickets came with a £18 voucher card to purchase the girl. of your choice. Choosing which gin was aided by a menu giving advice and suggesting mixers / garnish etc. The prices ranged from £3:50 to £12 per shot. You then completed a card indicating which gin you wanted and presented it at the bar.
They were all very tasty but favourite was the Sake infused gin with ginger ale.
There were lots of staff on so service was fast, so no waiting at the bar while some fool counts out his pocket money.
There was a really good food counter serving the best enchiladas I've tasted. Clientele was over 30 so the atmosphere was relaxed although the Seating arrangements were a bit formal, with trestle style tables and bench Seating, more like you'd find on a Scout jamboree.
All in all a great night if you like gin and if you didn't you could always buy the beer instead.

I've been drinking here since I was 18. Last night we rented the down stairs for a private function. It was perfect. We had control of music. The bar served brilliant beer and it was nice to have our friends and family all together in one of my favourite pubs.
Thanks to Eddy and Trina

The Bonded Warehouse

With a long history, The Bonded Warehouse serves the community. It can be hired for Wedding Receptions, Birthday Parties, Corporate Training and Evening Activity Clubs. Built from 1799, the distinctive 3-storey round-ended building is set alongside the Stourbridge Town Arm Canal where boats moor permanently. Please Note: no wheelchair access to upper floors and the road is cobbled and uneven.

No Frills Networking ran meetings there up to December 2015 and it is a fantasic venue for a medium sized corporate event.
A small kitchen allows for drinks and a minimal amount of food heating
Good facilities and right next to the Stourbridge canal basin allowing outside meetings in the summer. (Well sometimes anyway)

Stourbridge Town Hall

Reviewed By sportybirmingham - Birmingham, United Kingdom

This town hall is approached through the complex, Tesco is on the right hand side, the Town Hall & Library next to each other on the left hand side.
It is not a big town hall by today’s standards, but suitable enough for the beer festival that was held there for 4 days last month.
A small kitchen area & Seating area before you enter into the main hall itself. The toilets are at the back behind the hall. Men’s upstairs, ladies downstairs.
A nice place, with a fair amount of history if you read the boards dotted on the walls.
Various other shows & events take place here through out the year.
