The Overview

Fashioned from a Cultural Revolution–era glazed tile factory, this eco-conscious boutique hotel is a model of sympathetic reclamation. The antique firing kilns now house the hotel reception and meeting rooms, and shards of turquoise and terracotta tiles are set, mosaic-like, into paths that wind through manicured grounds. Sixteen rooms each boast private gardens, slate flooring, crisp white linen and a floor-to-ceiling frontage of insulated glass, meaning guests wake early to a glorious panorama of mountains crested with watchtowers. Much of the staff at The Brickyard is drawn from local farming families, their pigs providing the sausages and bacon at breakfast. Maps indicating a variety of hikes up to the Great Wall are available at reception, and bicycles can be rented nearby to explore the surrounding villages.
