Sector Leisure and hospitality
Project type Refurbishment
Project location South West England
Client Barns & Yard of Hanley Hall
Products used Henslate flagstones, National Trust Petworth flagstones and Castle Blend flagstones
 
 

The Project

Barns & Yard of Hanley Hall comprises a Tudor barn and farm cottages which have been carefully restored to create a unique venue for weddings and celebrations. The landscape includes a lake and many period features and is in a beautiful location set against the Malvern Hills.

The challenge

The owners wanted to blend the traditional buildings with a more contemporary design which would appeal to their wedding guests. Externally it was important to create beautiful open spaces as a backdrop for photography and for easy outdoor entertaining. A range of contrasting products were needed to provide different textures and a blend of colours to the external courtyards and terraces.

The solution

"We saw that Westminster Stone did a National Trust range and knew their products would be excellent quality and aesthetically correct. We needed a large quantity so although we would have loved to use natural stone, we couldn’t afford to – however the handmade products have turned out to be even better as they are frost proof as well, We used a mix of Henslate flagstones, National Trust Petworth flagstones and Castle Blend flagstones. They are beautiful, hardwearing, robust and just look ‘right’”.
