Cumbrian boutique gem Hipping Hall, part of the Wildsmith portfolio of hotels, has given its restaurant, bar and a handful of its bedrooms an £80k makeover.
The country house hotel, owned by Andrew Wildsmith, gave six of its bedrooms a makeover, along with a revamp of its restaurant, bar and reception area, with the project taking one month to complete.
The work has been undertaken in a bid to ‘firmly connect Hipping Hall with its surroundings’, to reflect the hotel’s picturesque location in Cumbria.
Owner Wildsmith worked with the group’s interior designed James Mackie on the project and worked to capture Hipping’s sense of place, paying homage to the high fells, rivers and streams, woods and meadows surrounding the property.
Hipping Hall’s restaurant is designed to reflect head chef Oli Martin’s personality and his simple food ethos.
The project at Hipping Hall used suppliers local to the hotel where possible; Albion Metal works for ironmongery; Wallace Seymour Fine Art Products for paint pigments for the bedrooms and restaurant; Miles-Moore Ceramics for table decorations and an entire range of plates and Benjamin Thornber & Sons for tweeds for curtains, headboards, soft furnishings and cushions.
Hipping Hall is part of the Wildsmith Hotels collection, which includes The Ryebeck and newest launch, Forest Side, all situated in Cumbria in the Lake District.
