This project consisted of the refurbishment of an existing protected manor house, dating from 1876, into a small exclusive hotel of luxurious suites and a 2,000m² hotel extension to the rear, which included function and leisure facilities.

The project also included the construction of 45 no. houses at three different locations within the estate’s grounds:

  • 12 stone clad “Woodland Cabins” nestled into a clearance in the woods
  • 17 “Lakeside Lodges” on the banks of the estate’s private lake
  • 16 no. “Courtyard Cottages” built in the traditional courtyard style with a mix of single and two storey houses

Works included:

  • Restoration to all cornices, capitals & dado rails
  • Removal, fireproofing and reinstatement of all timber floors to their original state.
  • All plumbing & electrics upgraded in sympathy with the original building.
  • Works to an internal stone structure, to repair and reinstate.
  • The external stonework of the building was repaired, cleaned and capped.
  • The existing slates were removed, where required the roof timbers were treated and repaired, and it was re-roofed with felt, battens and natural slate, complete with lead valleys, counterflashings and rainwater installation.
  • The attic space was then converted from storage to living quarters and offices for the newly refurbished hotel.
  • New stone copings, cills, windows, lintols and door surrounds were applied to the old building and the extension to match the old building.
