Target market research determined the chosen building for this project. The intended clientele clearly stated they’d prefer to stay in a historical building with a lakeside view (highlighting The Lake District location); designed in a transitional style. The hotels purpose is a luxurious spa hotel offering optional ‘detox holidays’ including yoga and healthy meals. The building needed to facilitate this.


Lingholm Estate is a Victorian grade II listed building (built in 1873) on the shores of Derwent Water, The Lake District. The design of began through research into the history of Lingholm and the Victorian design era. Lingholm Estates most significant history is being the holiday home of Beatrix Potter. Her illustrations ‘Mr McGregors Garden’ and ‘The Tale of the Squirrel Nutkin’ were written during holidays at Lingholm Estate.

Colours from Beatrix Potter’s artwork were chosen (teal, pink, green and yellow) to incorporate this history into the design scheme. The combination is contrasting and creates a contemporary look.

Hints of nature are included in the design because of Lingholm’s famous walled garden and the hotels location.

Victorian style furnishings have been used throughout the design, creating transitional interiors. Rich textures such as velvet and gold chrome are seen through the concept adding luxury.
