Spring Surprise in the Lake District

Graham Hadaway - Friday, April 03, 2015

 

The Lake District is a beautiful place, there’s no doubt about it, and that’s what makes it the perfect location for our Church Suites. In the winter you’ve got the snow on the hills and ice on the lakes; the autumn brings warm colours and the crunch of leaves on the ground, and summer brings the sun, picnics and a lot of visitors. Although it provides stunning scenery all year round, the best time of year to make a visit the Lakes – in our opinion anyway – is definitely spring.

 

During spring the light nights are a novelty, the sun is warming up, the sheep are lambing and the birds are singing, and it’s fresh and new for a new year.

 

Full of peaceful lakes, tranquil valleys and dramatic mountains, you can get up close and personal with nature, take in the fresh air and the spectacular scenery, and spend some quality time with your loved one without feeling guilty.

 

It’s not just the outdoorsy types that are catered for though, the Lake District was made famous by literary figures like Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter and, because of that, there are plenty of interesting, literature-related things to do. The Beatrix Potter Gallery, for example, is hugely popular with children and adults alike – let’s face it, everyone knows the stories – then there’s the Windermere Steamboats Museum, Wordsworth’s Dove Cottage in Grasmere, Honister Slate Mine and even The Cumberland Pencil Museum in Keswick, home to the largest colouring pencil in the world.

If you’re considering a trip to the Lake District then as well as the beautiful scenery to enjoy, you’re going to need somewhere equally as impressive to rest your head at night, and for that, our Church Suites are perfect. After a long day hiking, cycling or roaming around a few of the county’s many museums, there’s nothing better than kicking your shoes off, putting your feet up and being able to relax in surroundings of pure luxury. Surround yourself with the plushest of cushions on your super king size bed, or bring spa luxury to your room and take a soak in your spa bath with underwater lighting while watching your favourite film. Luxury is something that comes naturally to us so we’re sure to have everything you could ever need.


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

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.
