The Cavendish Hotel at Baslow on the Chatsworth Estate has converted its adjacent coach house building into four new bedrooms.
The property, part of The Devonshire Hotels and Restaurant portfolio, now has a total of 28 bedrooms as part of its offering, after transforming the historic building with the help of interior designer Rachel Maclane and owner the Duchess of Devonshire.
Antique furniture has been brought back to life to furnish the bedrooms with individual pieces including French cabriolet armchairs and circular drum tables.
Old four poster beds were sent to a four poster restoration company for complete renovation and are fitted with Hypnos Landsdowne Cashmere luxury pocket-sprung mattresses in line with the beds throughout the hotel.
English manufactured carpets and fabrics have been used combining textures and patterns and include carpets woven with the Chatsworth serpent motif.
Managing director Philip Joseph commented: “From first discussions, through obtaining planning permission to carrying out the actual work, all along our emphasis has been to ensure we look after the lovely features of the building whilst creating a sense of luxury and complete comfort for our guests. Our architects, Haxton Koyander, designed sympathetic extensions to two elevations enhancing the space and overall appearance. Rachel, who was also responsible for our most recent refurbishments in the main hotel, has done a brilliant job in guaranteeing the rooms are well thought out and equipped to the highest standard to offer a totally relaxing experience.”
