REDWORTH Hall Hotel has benefitted from a £150k cash injection transforming its Great Hall in time for a busy summer of weddings.
Dating back to 1693, the property was acquired by current owner Cairn Group in 2016, which has partnered with local suppliers on all decoration, electrical and restoration works to return the hotel to its former glory – combining modern design with its historical attributes.
Changes to The Great Hall include refreshed décor from floor to ceiling with decorative wall panels and traditional wallpaper together with luxurious feature curtains lit by beautiful crystal and gilt chandeliers. The original oak floor and the huge stone fireplaces have been sympathetically restored to create unique focal points.
As part of the new interior scheme, the two entrance lounges have been fully refurbished, featuring complementary shades of grey and burgundy and encompassing the original artwork for a contemporary feel with a nod to tradition. The adjacent ladies powder room now features sage-coloured porcelain tiles and a bevelled glass vanity area.
A popular space for nuptials in particular, the Great Hall can host up to 110 guests during the ceremony and wedding breakfast, and up to 150 as part of the evening celebrations.
For couples looking for a last minute venue for a winter wedding, there is limited availability to be amongst the first to tie the knot in the new-look venue.
North East brides-to-be can explore the venue at an upcoming open evening on Thursday 03 August, welcomed with a glass of fizz on arrival. The hotel’s team of wedding coordinators will be on hand to give tours and answer any questions about the packages available, and a variety of local suppliers will be showcasing their services.
In addition to weddings, the Great Hall can host occasions from charity balls and gala dinners; to birthday parties, anniversary celebrations and baby showers. Conferencing and meeting facilities are also available, for up to 100 delegates.
Vince Johnson, general manager at Redworth Hall Hotel, said: “At Redworth Hall Hotel we are immensely proud of the property’s vast history, which has been expertly preserved and uplifted as part of our Great Hall’s recent refurbishment.
“The works have significantly enhanced our functions offering, and we’re looking forward to showing off our new look at our next wedding open evening which offers the perfect opportunity to see the hall set up for an occasion.”
Redworth Hall Hotel is a 143-bedroom property set within 26 acres of undisturbed woodlands and gardens. Located close to the A1 and Darlington on the edge of the Durham Dales, the hotel is ideal for both business and leisure stays, as well as functions and events.
