Combermere Abbey on the Cheshire/Shropshire border has just opened the doors of its luxury B&B accommodation in its newly-restored North Wing.
Spread over two floors, the B&B features two luxurious bedrooms and a series of spectacular reception rooms. The interiors were styled by world-class interior designer, Nina Campbell in association with Restoration Project Director, and owner of the Abbey, Sarah Callander Beckett. They won the Sotheby’s/Historic House Association Restoration Award within weeks of opening.
We’re delighted to announce a special introductory B&B rate: price per room, Sunday-Thursdays, £140 (Bhurtpore) and £155 (Salamanca) and for weekends from just £175/£190.
What to expect
The North Wing has its own dedicated entrance, via a grand hallway with its black and white stone floor and featuring a carved stone fireplace. This leads to a formal dining room, which blends Gothic style with an Indian influence and beautiful jewel-bright accent colours.
A delightful, light-filled living room has picture windows, enjoys dual aspect over the mere and the garden, its warm floral-inspired palette featuring geranium pink and sage green hues.
On the first floor are two double bedrooms. ‘The Salamanca’, boasts a super king sized bed with half canopied tester with silk brocade drapes and décor of a soothing palette of oyster and pale blues, enhanced by original artwork, by Peter Beckett, Sarah’s husband; also a stunning en-suite bathroom, featuring an oversized free standing bath placed before a Gothic picture window, enjoying a breathtaking view over the mere, and his n hers vanity units.
‘The Bhurtpore’ can be presented as one king size bed or twin beds. Its charming décor is accented with soft furnishings in a warm shade of coral, complementing the carved oak panelling, wooden floors and stone fireplace. The bedroom has its own en suite facilities including a walk-in shower and marble-topped vanity basin, once again sharing views to the front elevation of the Abbey.
Also on this floor is the Tudor Study with original 400-year-old oak beams, once on the exterior walls of the Abbey and now cleverly reversed to the interior and plasterwork decorated with heraldic symbols, provides an interesting and historically relevant feature to this beautiful, cosy living room.
Sarah Callander Beckett, owner of Combermere Abbey, said:
“It is a huge pleasure to be able to invite guests to stay in The Abbey’s North Wing. We’re overjoyed with the renovation and it’s a real privilege for my family and I to share this and the beauty and tranquility of this estate”.
A traditional English cooked breakfast, with farm-fresh local produce is prepared by the Abbey’s own in-house staff, and served in the Dining Room. Both rooms also have their own tea and coffee-making facilities, luggage storage and flat screen TVs.
Guests have access to the estate’s woodland walks, mere, Knot Garden, and the formal Victorian walled gardens, which feature the world’s only fruit tree maze.
