New Bar and Conservatory

We hope you enjoyed our previous blog post regarding the new kitchen. If you would like to read our kitchen blog post, please look here;

In January 2011 it was decided that along with refurbishing the kitchen we would refurbish the bar and conservatory at Appleby Manor Hotel, a leading Lake District Hotel, to make it more appealing to our guests. This is what the conservatory looked like before the refurbishment took place in January 2012;

Old Conservatory

It took a while for us to decide exactly what would be done, in the end after much research it was decided it would be made to feel more homely and more like a front room. The newly refurbished conservatory now has brand new pinoleum blinds which are made of real wood in France using an age old process. There is a new Axeminster carpet along with armchair like wicker furniture. The conservatory has fantastic views over Appleby castle, the Cumbrian fells and our Cumbria in Bloom award winning gardens which are not to be missed in spring and summer.

The old bar was homely but lacked the space to make it an effective and appealing area, here is what the bar looked like before the refurbishment took place;

Old Bar

It was decided that the bar service area would be completely stripped out and replaced to make it more functional and eye pleasing. The bar now consists of a solid oak counter that was sourced locally from KBS contracts, a company in Kendal and was built by Kirkland Kitchens, also of Kendal who are regularly tasked to build £60 – 100k kitchens. With the new bar came an increased working area which means that it is now able to accommodate a new sink, an ice machine and more barrels of beer. The walls have been papered using Harlequin wallpaper, the ceiling has been painted a lighter shade of green and the ceiling-rose and cornice have also been redecorated to make them more in keeping. The seating area has been carpeted with the same Axeminster carpet as the conservatory and finished off with plush velvet curtains and luxury tub chairs.
