Capesthorne Hall in Cheshire will launch its first overnight accommodation as part of ambitious plans to increase the number of weddings held at its 100-acre estate.
The six double and family luxury en-suite pods, alongside cottage renovations, are set to launch in March and will feature stylish furnishings, Bluetooth speakers and a small kitchenette.
The luxury accommodation will retain historic features from the site including materials from redundant greenhouses which will be used to create seating areas for guests.
The plans for this latest development date back to 2016 after identifying the demand for on-site accommodation at venues hosting weddings and events.
The new venture is predicted to double the number of future wedding bookings and will create three new jobs at the Bromley-Davenport family-owned estate.
Capesthorne Hall has made a significant investment into the project and also received a leader funding grant, which provides funding for projects that create jobs, helps businesses to grow, and benefits the rural economy.
Matthew Burton, associate director at managing property agency Fisher German, said: “This is a milestone development for Capesthorne Hall, which until now has only had a caravan park within its grounds.
“It is an extremely popular wedding venue which dates back to the early 18th century and is set in 100 acres of Cheshire countryside, so it is a perfect place to get married.
“We have already received a lot of positive feedback and the additional income stream will contribute to funding essential repairs to the hall and grounds.”
The new accommodation at the Macclesfield venue will also be offered to those visiting the area and will be available all year round.
