Flat Cap Hotels invests in 12 new suites
Flat Cap Hotels, a collection of bespoke gastro-led heritage hotels in Cheshire, has announced it will launch 12 new suites at two of its venues, The Courthouse in Knutsford and The Bridge in Prestbury this year.
The Courthouse and The Bridge, both Grade II listed venues, will see the addition of six new suites each, providing luxury accommodation set in some of the loveliest parts of England.
The new suites aim to provide a home-away-from-home, offering spacious and opulent rooms, combining period features with contemporary touches that strike the perfect balance between grandeur and comfort.
The Courthouse, situated in the popular Cheshire town of Knutsford, is a Grade II listed 200-year-old heritage building, designed by famous architect, George Moneypenny and originally the Knutsford Crown Court. Lovingly restored to its former glory, The Courthouse now houses a grand hotel, restaurant and event space.
The Courthouse currently houses three luxury rooms and will add a further six suites to its collection. The new suites will offer between 28-40 square metres of spacious luxury, decorated in a style that’s befitting with the iconic building.
Embracing classical and Victorian style, the new suites pay homage to a traditional English country manor house, decorated in hues of green, blue and lavender complete with vintage and Baroque styled furniture. Distinct features found throughout the bedrooms include grand mirrors, four poster beds, unique art, bespoke rugs, high ceilings, original fire places and luxury bathrooms with rainfall showers and roll top baths. Added touches include ultra-fast complimentary WIFI throughout, and a vintage desk complete with banker’s light, Roberts radio and a smart plasma TV.
The Bridge, situated in the picturesque village of Prestbury, is a Grade II listed country pub; combining quirky decor with country comforts, The Bridge boasts luxurious accommodation and fine food, complete with beautiful views of the gardens and the River Bollin.
The Bridge balances the excellent facilities with genuine character and appeal, currently housing 23 rooms, divided between the historic half-timbered part of the building and the Whiteside Wing.
The six brand new beautifully designed suites reside in the grade II listed part of the building varying from 28-38 square metres. Each suite contains unique features with original beams and parquet wooden floors – adding a distinct Art Deco touch, bespoke furniture and wallpaper, all in delicate hues of green, blue and lavender. The luxury bathrooms boast classical tiles, rainfall showers and colourful roll top baths with Bramley toiletries.
The Flat Cap portfolio comprises of The Courthouse in Knutsford, The Bridge in Prestbury and The Vicarage in Holmes Chapel. Each Flat Cap destination offers something different, from Grade II listed country pubs with luxury accommodation, to an imposing heritage Crown Court building, which once was the location of the infamous trail of Alan Turing. The restored venues are steeped in historical significance and original features. All are food-led destinations, featuring restaurants, bars, pubs and event space, complemented with unique, eclectic-designed accommodation.
