In August 2014, RSA were commissioned by the Michelin star chef Michael Caines as lead designers, Architects, Landscape designers and CDM-C to design the £5M refurbishment and extension of a historic Grade II listed Georgian manor house called Lympstone Manor (Previously called Courtlands).
The brief included the sensitive renovation, restoration and extension of Courtlands House estate from a wedding venue into a 21-bedroom luxury county house hotel and fine dining restaurant. Other elements included the design of staff accommodation, operations building, staff offices and extensive landscaping.
This high-end project incorporates extensive remodelling to incorporate Michelin star quality kitchens and luxurious guestrooms that exploit panoramic views of the Exe estuary.
The project started on site in November2015 and is scheduled for completion and opening in April 2017.
The project has won The Times 'Best New Hotel of 2017'.
