Beamish Hall is left beaming following new flooring refurbishment

A 20th century hall hotel in the North East of England, Beamish Hall, is set in outstanding rolling parkland on the borders of County Durham and Tyne & Wear. The hotel has recently undergone a refurbishment to bring new life to the estate, whilst keeping the traditional look in line with the building’s heritage.

Set in 24 Acres of woodland and landscaped gardens, Beamish Hall comprises 42 individually designed bedrooms, a luxury apartment and a selection of rooms often used for weddings, events and parties.

After considering options, Dave Craggs from Beamish Hall chose to specify 300m2  of Jacobean Oak Eternity Parquet LVT in a parquet style from CFS. Ultimate Flooring NE installed the flooring, which would reflect the classic British heritage of the Hall, suit the stone walls and open fires that can be found around the premises, and also provide the ability to withstand numerous events and visitors.

Eternity Parquet is a tiled LVT, available in 15 natural wood effect finishes. Eternity Parquet LVT comes with a 0.30mm wear layer, meaning that it can be cleaned regularly, without compromising the quality of the floor. It also comes with PU coating for extra surface protection, making it ideal for domestic and light commercial environments.

Installed in two dining rooms, a linked seating area and a bar area, Eternity Parquet was installed around open fires and stone walls, meaning that Ultimate Flooring NE would set lines and scribe to ensure absolute precision of the tiles.

Brian Sheldon, owner of Ultimate Flooring NE, said: “The flooring looks absolutely fantastic. I’ve worked with CFS products for a number of years, and knew that Eternity Parquet LVT was the perfect solution to the Beamish Hall refurbishment, and I was right! Now the flooring has been put down, it’s hard to imagine how it was before – it fits perfectly with the look and feel of the place. We’re looking forward to working with CFS and Beamish Hall again in the future.”

Jason Melling, Area Sales Manager at Carpet and Flooring, distributors of CFS said: “Beamish Hall is an absolutely stunning estate – from the stables, to the tearooms, to the microbrewery, it’s a beautiful piece of the North East’s history. When we heard about the refurbishment from Brian, we knew it was a project we would love to be involved in and it’s definitely lived up to that expectation. We’re really proud to have our flooring there, and the whole project has been a pleasure to work on.”
