Linthwaite House has today reopened its doors after a year-long £10m renovation project spearheaded by owners Leeu Collection.
The property’s 30 bedrooms, new Stella restaurant and bar and conservatory have all been given a revamp, more than two years after the hotel was acquired by April 2016 by the hotel group owned by Indian entrepreneur Analjit Singh.
The bedrooms have been renovated by designer Beverley Boswell, who is responsible for the interiors of South African sister properties Leeu Estates, Leeu House and Le Quartier Français.
The new restaurant Stella will focus on local and organic produce, with menus influenced by international celebrity chef Ritu Dalmia.
Linthwaite House’s bar and conservatory has been opened up and extended and will serve an all-day dining menu, afternoon teas and cocktails in the evenings.
Six newly-created Woodland Suites will open in autumn later this year. With each room averaging 66 sq metres, the suites will feature floor-to-ceiling windows, open-plan bedroom, bathroom and living space.
The hotel’s 14 acres of grounds have been reworked by landscape artist Franchesca Watson with new striking sculptures brought in.
Another addition to the gardens is a standalone bar that overlooks the croquet lawn and garden chess set.
