The brand behind the magic

Graham Hadaway - Wednesday, March 25, 2015

 

Just lately, our blog has been dedicated to spreading the word about the fabulous new addition to The Cranleigh name, the luxurious Church Suites. If you’ve been keeping up to date, you’ll have noticed that one of the elements that we’re certainly most impressed about - and we’re sure you are too - are the audio and visual systems that we have in place that allow you to create your own perfect haven.

 

Each of the suites comes with its own individual system with plenty of pre-set settings and ample scope for you to explore the visuals and audio on offer to create your own private hub of lights, music and movies. If you feel like relaxing in a deep bubble bath with the spa jets on, blue under water lighting and your favourite love song filling the room with beautiful sound, then why not? This is your paradise after all. Equally, if you feel like cosying up with your loved one on our soft, deep seated sofas, covered over with a beautifully plush blanket, enjoying a box of fine chocolates while engrossed in your favourite film, go right ahead, we won’t even try and stop you! 

 


 

All of our audio-visual systems have been provided and installed by up and coming Lancashire company, Epixx. Epixx was founded in 2014 by technology enthusiasts Matt Holmes and Ben Tomlinson, and they’re now a leading technology and AV company, covering the whole North West of the UK.

 

The aim of the guys at Epixx is “to make your life easier by recommending the best, most good-looking, simple-to-use, energy-efficient and highly-trusted technologies - Equipment that puts clients firmly in control, enhances homes and redefines lives!”

 

Matt Holmes, a director at Epixx, had this to say about their work at our Church Suites:

 

“While the Church Suites project is Epixx’s first foray into the leisure sector, working with one of the Lake District’s most prolific hoteliers meant we were able to come up with a vision that showed off our expertise in full.


The suites feature a bespoke AV automated design system meaning guests can experience luxuriously appointed rooms with all the additional comforts of cutting-edge technology.”


Each of our suites really are truly amazing, don’t take our word for it though, come and create a bespoke experience for yourself


The relaxing goes much further than the suite

Graham Hadaway - Monday, March 23, 2015

We’ve promoted them so much, you probably think you know all there is to know about our exquisite Church Suites. With their iPad control panels for luscious lighting, mood enhancing music and much-loved movies; their magnificent bathrooms and high-end furnishings, there’s really nothing that these suites are missing.


We’re really not joking. As well as indulging in fine wine and surroundings at our Church Suites, you’ll also have free access to our spa and gym facilities for the duration of your stay, so you can maintain your normal fitness routine or just enjoy being pampered with a few of our treatments. 

 


 

We have a 20m swimming pool, a fully equipped techno-gym and a thermal suite that all guests are free to use throughout their stay.


If you wish to splurge a little more, then consider one of our opulent spa treatments and benefit from 10% off as a guest of our Church Suites.

 

Whatever the reason for your stay, there’s no way you won’t feel relaxed and ready to take on the world after one of our amazing treatments. Choose from face and body therapies, anti-aging facials, detox therapy, or get yourself made up for a night with your loved one, with one of our amazing make-overs.

 

If you’re struggling to choose exactly how you’d like to be pampered then why not opt for one of our fabulous spa packages that’ll help rejuvenate your entire body? Whether you feel like a deep tissue massage, a deep muscle facial or a complete body exfoliation, there’ll be a treatment that’ll get your heart racing.

 

Every now and again, everyone deserves a little self-indulgence, so why not make the most of your amazing surroundings and complete your stay with a visit to our spa?


Swapping London for the Lakes and a blissful retreat

Graham Hadaway - Thursday, March 19, 2015

 

Life in London never stops and although a lot of people love that aspect of city life, sometimes the hustle and bustle, constant noise and high flying job-stress can get a bit too much. However, quite often people don’t leave the city because they don’t want to leave the luxury behind in exchange for some countryside chintz.

Church Suites Cranleigh Boutique

Now, this doesn’t even need to be a consideration because unimaginable luxury has made its way to the Lakes, in the form of the Cranleigh Church Suites.

 

These four suites contain everything you could ever need if you’re looking to escape the madness of the city while maintaining seamless luxury. With huge spa baths, super king-size beds, mood lighting throughout the suite (including the exquisite bathrooms), a film library of more than 400 favourites, a complimentary mini-bar and great places to eat on the doorstep, really, what more could you ever need?

Church Suites Cranleigh Boutique

Well, just in case you are looking for more, each of the suites has been individually designed by interior designer Jo Cross. She’s chosen everything from the carpet, to the furnishings and even the materials used on the bed spread. We’re also proud to boast an intelligent iPad control panel in every suite. From here you can change the lighting, the music and the movies that are played throughout the room - and the bathroom (yes, you can watch movies in the bath!). There are plenty of pre-set settings, so if you’re in the mood for a romantic night in then use our choice of love songs and romantic lighting, or just select something of your own.

 

Although there’s really no need to venture out of your suite, if you decide you’re in the mood for exploration then, as well as providing amazing accommodation, we’re also in the perfect location. Whether you’re into fine dining, cycling or you’re just looking to take in some beautiful sights, our Church Suites are just moments away from the shore of Lake Windermere where Lake District cruises depart regularly.

 

So, if you’re looking to escape to the country but want all the comforts of the city, the Cranleigh Church Suites are the place to be.

church suites - the cranleigh 

We stand out, but why?

Graham Hadaway - Wednesday, February 25, 2015

The majority of the time, when you make a hotel booking, you’re booking a room, a place to rest your head in between seeing the sites of a new location. However, at the Cranleigh Church Suites, you’re booking an experience.

 

Despite our great location and plentiful amenities, when you book a stay at our Church Suites you’re unlikely to see or do much of them. Why? Because you’ll be taken aback by your own little haven that you have no reason to leave if you don’t want to.

 

Each of our suites has been individually designed, decorated and accessorised by interior designer Jo Cross. However, unlike a lot of luxury accommodation, we haven’t only focussed on the bedroom – although, don’t worry it’ll be the softest, most lavish boudoir you’ve ever seen – the rest of the suite has been just as important to us.

 


 

One area of any hotel room that doesn’t really get too much focus is the bathroom. Usually, you’ll find yourself faced with a clean, white bathroom suite but nothing out of the ordinary. Well, not at the Church Suites, we teamed up with Aqua Jade Bathrooms to produce something spectacular. Our aim here was to create a space that’s fun and can be enjoyed but is still as practical and relaxing as originally intended.

 

There’s nothing standard about any of our bathrooms; each one has a supersize bath with underwater tranquillity lighting, underfloor heating, a 40” TV hidden behind a wall of mirrors, intelligent mood lighting, surround sound with music on demand and a selection of 5 star bathing accessories, including soft, fluffy towels and robes.

 

Why not come and experience our next generation bathrooms and extravagant suites for yourself? Book with us today

Valentine’s at the Church Suites

Graham Hadaway - Friday, February 06, 2015

 Valentine’s Day is the time of year our Church Suites were made for. Further advancing on the success of our Boutique Hotel and Hideout House Boutique, the Church Suites are even more spectacular.

 

With a little help from us and our four brand new suites, you really could make this Valentine’s weekend one that you’ll never forget…

Although very individual, there are certain things that each of our suites have in common. You’re guaranteed a level of luxury that you won’t find anywhere else in the Lakes – anywhere north of Birmingham, in fact. Each of our rooms have been designed by our in-house interior designer Jo Cross. She’s carefully chosen thick fabrics, plush cushions and soft furnishings to create a lavish atmosphere that is only successful because the Church Suites really are the whole package – modern, romantic rooms, an amazing atmosphere and a beautiful location.

 

The Church Suites, Indulgence, Opulence, Fantasy and Utopia

 

Here at the Church Suites we really do have everything covered. We know you guys and gals can have very different ideas when it comes to the perfect Valentine’s getaway, so we’ve tried to cover everything because we want all of our guests to have a great time.

 

For the old romantics out there, all of our suites are perfect for a relaxing Valentine’s getaway. Snuggle up to your loved one in our king-size beds, that have been dressed with the most luxurious sheets and plumpest cushions, and choose your favourite flick from our database of over 400 movies. Then maybe take a long candle-lit soak in the super-size air spa bath that can be found in every suite.

 

For those gents – or indeed ladies – that’re too cool for the romance, that doesn’t mean that Church Suites aren’t for you. In fact, they’ll be just as much up your street. A huge comfortable bed, the biggest bath you’ve ever seen, a database of more than 400 films and, to top it all off, your own iPad control panel which allows you to create an atmosphere perfect to your mood. From the iPad you can control the lighting – there’s even underwater lighting in each of the baths – and the music that’s flowing around the room. So, escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life and relax in a way you’ve never relaxed before.

Why not make your stay even more special with one of the extra treats we have on offer? We have everything covered, and can fill your room with everything from champagne and teddy bears to handmade chocolates to bathroom petals.

 

If you’re yet to make Valentine’s Day plans, you can be sure of a wonderful experience here at the Church Suites so give us a call to secure a weekend you’ll never forget. 

Take me to Church Suites

Graham Hadaway - Sunday, February 01, 2015

If you’re a fan of The Cranleigh then you’ll know that we’ve been working really hard over the last few months to perfect our new venture, The Church Suites.

 

Well, after seven long months and a lot of blood, sweat and tears, we’re pleased to reveal that January saw the end of our project and the introduction of four brand new, beautiful suites for you to feast your eyes upon.

 


 

Having been described as ‘a bit of the city in the Lakes’, by visitors, you can be sure of an unforgettable stay here at The Church Suites. Our new suites are completely separated from other parts of our hotel; located on Church Street, each individual suite is a private kingdom in its own right.

 

With state of the art technology and distinctive designs you’ll find yourself encased in an area of thick, luxurious fabrics, stimulating lighting and the latest technology – including iPad controlled mood lighting and a music library to suit all tastes (try out the pre-set romantic setting, you won’t be disappointed).

An Exciting New Development by The Cranleigh Boutique!

Adam Thorp - Thursday, August 14, 2014

The Church Suites under construction

 

It's all hands to the pump at the very popular boutique hotel Bowness property The Cranleigh Boutique. We have just secured our new and very exciting development that was known as Rose Cottage. 

 

It's one of the oldest properties in Bowness at 350 years and is in a fantastic location, right in the centre of Bowness overlooking the church.

 

It will be developed by the owner of The Cranleigh into four 5 star luxury suites.  Stephen says that he wants to create the ultimate in accommodation, beyond anything that has been done before using the latest in technology and design.

 

The aim is to create a massive WOW when you see the suites and bathrooms.

As luxury Lake District hotels go in the Lake District these new suites will be on another level says Stephen the owner. He is clearly very passionate about what he does and seems to know exactly what his customers want. Emma Johnson, the Manager of The Cranleigh Boutique is also super excited about their new venture and cannot wait until its completion, which by the way should be mid December this year.
The list of technology and the design ideas are quite something.

  • Cinema projector screens
  • Huge air spa baths for 2 people and large showers all with intelligent lighting
  • Intelligent lighting control throughout the suites
  • Intelligent music control
  • Integrated technology and features that wow you
  • Award winning interior design
  • Large sumptuous beds, bedding, towels, robes and accessories
  • Hugh bathroom televisions for the ultimate in indulgence
  • Green heating and hot water for our environment
  • Bespoke designer furniture, fittings, fabrics and wallpapers
  •  


Stop Press, we've got off to a flying start!

TripAdvisor Travellers' Choice Winner 2014 The Cranleigh Boutique

 

An update on our 5 star hotel in the Lake District (2014 to date).

 

So we found out in January that we are shortlisted to receive an award at the Travel Marketing Awards for the Best Use Of Social Media category, this event is to be held later in March down in London at the lovely Grosvenor House and we are certainly very excited to attend. This is a real achievement for us, the event is organised by the Chartered Institute of Marketing’s Travel Industry Group (CIMTIG) so it would be an unbelievable recognition for our marketing efforts. We're getting the glad rags on, talking about it in the office and traveling down for a night of hoping and fingers crossed celebrations too, we'll update you through our Social Media as soon as possible.

 

February was a brilliant month seeing the Cranleigh Boutique debut on ITV's 'This Morning' programme. We were displayed within the Valentines warm up on the 12th of the month. Our Windermere Boutique hotel was featured as one of the best hotels within the country specifically aimed at celebrating the annual romantic celebration. We've uploaded the video to our Vimeo channel for you to take a look at: http://vimeo.com/88166137 - definitely worth a watch and a proud moment for us!


TripAdvisor also revealed that we are still number one within the most romantic hotels in the Lake District category, actually within the North of England so we are beyond pleased to receive this accolade two years running. Click here to see our reviews: the Cranleigh Boutique TripAdvisor- thanks to all of our customers who have left reviews on the hotel, we're nearly at 1,000 reviews, which is incredible.

 

So we end with our fingers and toes crossed for the 20th March when we will be down in London.

 

Wish us luck!

 

Oh let's not forget actually we have had some unbelievable offers on lately for you too, make the most of these whilst they're on, seasonal treats!
