Client: Lake District Hotels Limited


Sedley Place were approached by a local hotelier who was looking for fresh, modern thinking for the design of a large scale, lakeside hotel extension. This 46 bed, country house on the shores of the UK’s largest lake and in the extraordinary surroundings of the Lake District National Park, was to receive an additional 32 bedroom suites, a function suite, leisure and spa facilities and associated servicing requirements.

The project continued an experimentation into a new Lakeland vernacular, which belonged, fundamentally to its location and was backed in its early stages by CABE. After further planning negotiations the scheme has received planning permission.

Alex Jones was Project Architect on the initial concept and schematic design stages of the project working closely with the client and local authority to establish the outline design within this very sensitive area of natural beauty.
