Historic Tees hotel Crathorne Hall now boasts a wealth of business and corporate facilities after a £4m restoration.
In consultation with English Heritage and Hambleton District Council’s planning and conservation officer, a team of specialist craftsmen worked on refurbishing and restoring grand architectural features at the hotel, which is situated in the beautiful North Yorkshire countryside just one mile from the A19.
Specialist structural techniques were employed to extend doorways and openings to create more space.
During the restoration, historical gems such as a splendid archway were uncovered in the County Suite corridor in the east wing, which has been restored and the detail repeated to create a grand colonnade.
In the former nursery, an old stove was discovered which nannies would have used to heat the iron for pressing clothes. This has also been preserved and incorporated as a feature.
The York and Ormesby bedroom wings have been rebuilt, using traditional lath and plaster to restore the ceilings. Fireplaces were uncovered and restored within some of the bedrooms.
As part of the exterior restoration, slate was hand cut to match the existing roof and installed by tilers, one section at a time to ensure the coursing was aligned. IT connectivity has also been improved as part of the refurbishment work.
Crathorne Hall now has a range of versatile meeting and conference facilities, including the newly-refurbished County Suite hosting three stunning meeting rooms, each named after a local region.
These rooms are interconnecting to provide a larger meeting area perfect for conferences or private functions.
The main Hall provides a further three function rooms offering a more traditional setting; the Drawing Room, with capacity for 100 people, the Edwardian Room, with room for 90 people, and the Presidents’ Lounge, suitable for boardroom or dining events for up to 28 delegates.
In addition, the property is situated on 15 acres of land, ideal for team building activities.
