Comber­mere Abbey

Exclusively British - - CRAFTSMANSHIP -

Since 1992 it has been Sarah Cal­lan­der Beck­ett's mis­sion to re­store and re­vi­talise the lovely Goth­ick man­sion of Comber­mere Abbey, where she lives. It has re­quired ex­ten­sive restora­tion of the main house, walled gar­den and an­cil­lary build­ings. The North Wing had been aban­doned in the 1950s and be­neath the gothic cladding was an un­sta­ble Tu­dor struc­ture which was en­dan­ger­ing the whole build­ing. The North Wing is now re­stored to pro­vide a se­ries of beau­ti­fully-ap­pointed bed­room suites which can be booked on a bed and break­fast ba­sis. The bed­rooms are all su­perb, the bath­rooms out­stand­ing and the at­ten­tion to de­tail im­pres­sive. This is not the only award won by the team at Comber­mere who have es­tab­lished an ad­mired and well in­te­grated busi­ness which has breathed new life into a once threat­ened house.
