Are you feeling stuck for inspiration on how to design your house?
Maybe a design holiday is just what you need to get out of a rut.
Grab your partner or some friends, pack a suitcase and book into one of these six Cheshire hotels to get the interior design creativity flowing.
‘Idiosyncratic, whimsical and charming’ is how Oddfellows describes its design-led boutique hotel bang in the centre of Chester.
Perfectly situated for an overnight stay with friends, family or colleagues, the Georgian Townhouse boasts beautiful bedrooms, apartments, cocktail bars and a secret garden retreat to retire to.
Want to put some quirk in your home, Oddfellows is the perfect place to build a new reality.
The Alexandra Court Hotel, Congleton
A beautiful boutique hotel packed with Victorian-era glamour. The exclusive hotel has been lovingly restored for those that want to experience some of the excesses of the period without using a time machine.
If the brief on your decorating job is class and comfort then make sure you find out who supplies the Alexandra Court’s linen. Otherwise you may never get to sleep in a bed as elegant as this one ever again.
Hotel Indigo, Chester
Another designer hotel in Chester, Hotel Indigo is a relatively new addition to Chester’s hotel scene. So, if you like to keep up with the most current of trends then make sure you pay it a visit.
Located in the historic market town, Indigo is a perfect example of how to blend traditional and contemporary themes – wrapping them up in a perfect package.
Inside, you’ll find clean lines, modern furniture and daring ideas – but there is still a sense of warmth and comfort that you associate with older sites.
Roebuck Inn, Mobberley
A rustic inn that knows how to take care of its guests. The grade II listed Roebuck Inn is the oldest inn in the village of Mobberley and – since its restoration in 2016 – has gone on to win awards for its food, drink, bedrooms and all around hospitality.
The Roebuck is jam-packed with character and – with French hotel and bistro feel set in an old-fashioned English Pub – makes for a unique and memorable stay.
Whether you are looking to steal design inspiration for your bedroom, dining area or your sitting room, visit the Roebuck and you will have ideas pushing through your eyeballs.
32 by The Hollies, Tarporley
A five-bedroom boutique hotel right on Tarporley High Street, 32 by The Hollies houses a luxury restaurant serving up fine Cheshire produce at breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner.
The food has been Highly Commended by Cheshire Life in the 2019 Food and Drink Awards so you might pick up some food-inspiration tips during your stay as well.
Cheshire Boutique Barns, Nantwich
These unique five-star retreats are perfect for couples, colleagues and old friends that want to get together in the privacy of their own holiday cottage – not some soulless country hotel.
With four different barns to choose from, including the Parlour, the Cowshed and the Nest, there’s something for every group.
And the spots have all been loving decorated with a rustic appeal that is so prevalent in Cheshire.
