A highlight of the makeover is a new bar area.

The Leathes Head Hotel in the Lake District reopened after a makeover. The property in the Borrowdale Valley near Keswick in Cumbria in England now has a new look that was inspired by its locality, including a new showpiece bar featuring Kirkstone Brathay slate, new Cumbrian oak display cabinets and a meter-wide basket light, alongside a revamp of seven of its 11 bedrooms and bathrooms.

The whole interior was crafted by local tradespeople, with products coming from the likes of Ambleside and Bothel, and the design was overseen by Other Works.

According to Pippa Murray of Other Works, aside from working with local skilled craftspeople in Cumbria, the design team also worked with local materials in the valley.
