Sweeney Properties Ltd is to open high quality accommodation in the heart of the Lake District in the summer of this year.Located just off the A591 & only five minutes away from Keswick on the site of the Old School House and Youth Hostel at Legburthwaite near Keswick, it will be a 40 bed lodge hotel.
The design, by local award winning architects Savage & Chadwick, fits into the landscape, utilising local traditional building features and materials, whilst having a contemporary feel.
This is achieved by a two story glass atrium at the heart of the building and the mixing of cedar wood cladding and local stone work under a Westmorland slated roof.
Sweeney Properties, managing director, Derek Sweeney said: “This is a really exciting project for us as it will add to our ability to cater for another sector of our clientele who are looking for high quality accommodation but do not want the full range of services provided by our Inns.”
Derek Sweeney also said: “Over the last seventeen years we have seen many changes in tourism in the Lake District. Our Lake District hotels and cottages are all located in the heart of The National Park and are a very good barometer for measuring the ebb and flow of business over the years.”
