A hotel in Bedfordshire that has been renovated under its new ownership has caught the eye of producers at Channel 4 that is setting the property on the path to TV stardom.
The Woodland Manor Hotel in Clapham in the county has been undergoing an extensive refurbishment over the last eight months, after Raj and Neera Regmi acquired a 20-year lease on the property.
Together with commercial and operations manager Freya Whitney, they have worked to transform the historic 34-bedroom hotel, with work including major structural changes and a complete interiors redesign.
“Removing the ivy has not only saved the brickwork from long-term damage but you can now really see the building in all its beauty. As we get busier, I’m enjoying the customers great feedback on what we have done,” says Raj Regmi, managing director.
As a result of the project, The Woodland Manor Hotel has also been signed to Freeform Productions who have been commissioned by Channel 4 to make a 20-episode series ‘Escape to the Manor’, documenting the renovation and growth of the business.
Woodland Manor is situated within four acres of secluded and mature gardens, home to 34 bedrooms, a bar, conservatory, three function rooms and a restaurant.
