Wingrove House in Alfriston East Sussex has utilised a £700k funding package to expand its business, with new bedrooms to accommodate demand in the area.
Owners of the hotel, Neil Eckert, Phil Lewin and Ben Porter have used £500k to purchase the adjoining property next door and then a further £200k to refurbish three neighbouring cottages, meaning in total the business can now accommodate 29 guests at any one time.
The £200k funding boost has seen two of three cottages transformed with five additional bedrooms, which are linked to the main hotel, while the third has been converted into a three-bed holiday let to sleep five.
The colonial-style house now boasts 12 double bedrooms, while the restaurant, which is run by chef Mathew Comben, has been relocated and refurbished.
Phil Lewin from Wingrove House said: “Our restaurant continues to thrive under Mathew’s expert eye and with all the new room refurbishments now complete, our excellent staff are looking forward to welcoming more new guests to experience the wonderful village of Alfriston, the stunning adjacent South Downs and our unique and very special House.”
