Hipping Hall, a boutique restaurant with rooms on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, has recently welcomed the addition of five new suites and a private dining room, after an investment of £250,000.
The hotel, part of Wildsmith Hotels, has transformed a former stable block in its grounds into five luxury suites, a chef’s kitchen and private dining room, benefitting from a significant injection from its owner Andrew Wildsmith.
The work, which has now been completed, will enable the Grade-II listed property to host larger functions and weddings, as well as encouraging guests to try a range of different dining experiences, headed up by Hipping Hall’s head chef Oli Martin.
Harrison Pitt Architects were behind the new suites, working closely with Wildsmith to produce the new layout, before contractor Pinington’s interpreted those plans and interior designer James Mackie then came on board to finish off the project.
Mackie has been involved in the hotel’s design for a while, working on other interior schemes within Hipping Hall, including the Tatham Suite.
The gardens surrounding the Old Stables have also been given a full makeover, with the addition of a chef’s garden.
Andrew Wildsmith, owner of the Hipping Hall, said: “Hipping is the embodiment of what a wonderfully luxurious country house hotel should be. The significant investment we are making in the new suites located in the Old Stables is part of our ongoing commitment to enhancing the product we offer our guests. The addition of a chef’s kitchen and private dining room will also enable us to cater for a range of different functions and offer exclusive dining experiences in the coming months, further enhancing the foodie reputation we are building for the hotel.”
