The Belfry, West Midlands

belry hotel

Its that time of year again Green Ginger Gallery visit the UK’s largest Home & Gift Trade Fair, so we’ve planned our stay over at The Belfry which looks amazing.


Today, following a £26 million refurbishment, their interiors more than match The Brabazon’s iconic greens and fairways.  Pull up a stool at the glittering Champagne bar and dine in style in their two enticing restaurants.  Then drift away in the world-class spa and lastly sink into a deep, cosy bed.

Nestled in over 500 acres of idyllic countryside they’re a world away from the hustle and bustle of Birmingham, yet still just 20 minutes from the city centre and New Street Station and 10 minutes from Birmingham International Airport.


Can’t wait!

Moulin Roty @ Green Ginger Gallery

Green Ginger Gallery just love the range Les Jolis pas Beaux (literally, The Pretty Uglies) from Moulin Roty.  Their odd look and crazy attitude soon seduces parents, and today it is one of Moulin Roty’s star collections.
