Warner Hotels Group appoints hospitality design experts to reimagine British manor house hotel.
An 18th-century manor hotel in Oxfordshire is being given a new lease of life by multi-disciplinary and interior architecture firm DesignLSM.
Heythrop Park already operates as a resort in the upmarket Chipping Norton area of the UK but is going to be brought into the 21st century by the Brighton-based studio. We find out more.
Cotswolds manor to get a facelift
Warner Hotels Group has enlisted Brighton-based DesignLSM studio to oversee the renovation of their Cotswolds property, Heythrop Park Resort. This is a country manor, which is grade-II listed and already is in use as a hotel.
Warner Hotels will task DesignLSM with bringing the 18th-century manor hotel into line with its Warner Collection of luxury hotels, which also includes the enchanting Studley Castle Hotel in Warwickshire.
Warner Hotels is geared towards adults who are looking to spend some quality time in beautiful palatial settings surrounded by manicured gardens, lawns and rolling countryside.
Holly Hallam, Managing Director, DesignLSM, spoke of the appointment, saying, “We are extremely thrilled to be involved in such a momentous project. Heythrop is a truly stunning property, dating back to the 1700s, it has a fantastic feeling to it, exuding a great charm and character.”
“We are working with a fabulous team at Warner Hotels to curate an overall guest experience that really speaks to the heritage of the building and the estate, whilst at the same time delivering the new, evolved Warner vision,” Ms Hallam elaborated.
DesignLSM tackles 18th-century estate
Known as a venue for weddings and conferences, Heythrop Park Resort is a 340-key hotel set within a grade-II listed country manor.
DesignLSM will be tasked with coming up with a kind of master plan for the entire site, which will encompass curation of the overall guest experience, constructing a comprehensive narrative for the design of the hotel, gardens and grounds to encourage a fluid experiential journey through the site.
Within the design-scape, there will also be the consideration and execution of three statement restaurants, four lounge spaces and areas for socialising and entertaining.
According to the hotel’s website, Heythrop Park is “the jewel in the crown.” The “opulent, imposing hotel promises traditional charm, historic hospitality and no shortage of the ‘wow factor’.”
The entire property offers a true British country house experience, where guests can indulge in afternoon tea, private parties, elegant weddings and romantic weekend escapes in the perfect setting. 17 original period bedrooms invite guests to savour a very special stay.
