Hospitality group Ramside Estates has unveiled ambitious plans for a £13m expansion of a County Durham hotel.
The company – owner and operator of Ramside Hall Hotel and Golf Club, Hardwick Hall, Bowburn Hall as well as leisure venues around the region – has already made significant investmen into its properties in recent years, including the launch of luxury treehouses. The group, which also owns The Fed, Colonel Porters and The Impeccable Pig, first revealed ambitions for expansion in its latest accounts, when it outlined plans for further developments to make the business more of a resort.
Now the firm has submitted plans to create a luxury spa and health club and additional 35 bedrooms at Hardwick Hall Hotel near Sedgefield. If it secures permission, work will begin late next year. The new scheme will rejuvenate buildings that have been derelict for more than 60 years, while also creating or sustaining 140 temporary construction jobs and 63 new full and part jobs once completed.Source: Business Live
