Peach is to open the first project funded by its recent £9.5m refinancing next week.

The boutique hotel next door to its existing High Field gastropub in Edgbaston, Birmingham, will launch on Monday.

The 12 bedroom High Field Town House occupies a 1860’s Victorian villa which has been designed by Peach’s co-owner Jo Eames.

Eames said: “When we opened The High Field in 2014, aiming to create a country pub in town, it was such an immediate hit that we jumped at the chance to convert the lovely old house next door into boutique hotel rooms with the same vibe.

“Eighteen months later, we are opening the doors to The High Field Town House which is just five minutes away from the centre of the city yet feels a world away amongst the greenery and elegant houses of Edgbaston which is rapidly becoming a chic place to eat, drink and sleep.”

The High Field Town House will be managed by Peach partner Sarah Robinson, and Adrian Corry.
