Country Hotel Scheme

Coleshill Hall Farmhouse.   


Having been redundant for many years and damaged by vandals this listed country house, coach house and stables needed a new use to save it. The most suitable scheme found being the creation of a Hotel. A new wing was planned to provide 40 bedrooms. The listed building was to be converted and restored for the reception and dining facilities.

Unfortunately the project was halted following the announcement of the route of HS2 railway which is to pass directly over.
