From jungle to pond……?

At Ragdale Hall we are lucky to have a very dedicated Maintenance Team working extremely hard to keep the interiors of the Hall looking in great shape.  If, and when, areas do begin to look tired, you can guarantee they’re already at the top of the Maintenance Team’s to-do lists.

The guys had a very tough call on one of their most recent projects.  An area that was looking tired, however still managed to wow many of our guests – the Verandah Bar Loos!

Due to the wow-factor and importance of them – all our guests will need to visit them at some point during their stay – we were a little reluctant to change, however we’re thrilled with the end result.  We hope you like their transformation from jungle to pond!

The stunning dragonfly wallpaper was chosen with the beautiful wildlife we have here at Ragdale in mind.  And the Koi carp paper is in honour of our little fishy friends in the moat!

You see, whether it’s a bathroom that needs a revamp, bedrooms ready for a makeover or loos that want a new look, the team take pride in everything they do and love to create something beautiful for our guests to look at.

And it’s not always the interior they work on, Rob has been busy re-tiling the Outdoor Pool.  This task has been a little more difficult than originally thought which means it’s taken a little longer than expected, or so Rob tells us, however we think he’s perhaps been enjoying the sunniest April on record a bit too much – and who would blame him!

With sunny April gone, May was cold and wet and more tiles were needed than originally thought so the project will not be completed until later in June, however guests are still welcome to use the surrounding area and the changing rooms.

Here’s how it’s looking so far…
