Lake District refurbs for Inn Collection Group

Three Lake District Inns are now under refurbishment as the Inn Collection Group works to breathe new life into the Wateredge Inn, the Waterhead Inn and the Angel Inn.

The Inn Collection Group property director Louise Stewart said: “We are delighted to be working with GSSArchitecture and bringing their expertise to the refurbishment of these much-loved inns. They are iconic sites that we are excited to have brought into group and we are confident guests will love them once they are ready to welcome people back through their doors.

“It is important to us that our renovations bring our own identity but at the same time are respectful of these iconic properties heritage and working with GSSArchitecture will help achieve that at these inns.”   

GSSArchitecture partner Simon Rennison-Rae commented: “It’s a pleasure to be working so closely with The Inn Collection Group on multiple projects in the Lake District and beyond.
