The Samling Hotel, located in the heart of The Lake District National Park, set across 67 acres of beautiful countryside, incorporating a spectacular prospect across Lake Windermere. Following the success of several Planning Permissions, HPA have been the trusted partner and Architect of the Samling Hotel since 2018.
Appreciated as an historic tourist attraction for the Samling hotel, the previous jetty suffered significant storm damage in 1992 and was left unattended and derelict. The state of disrepair, however, wasn’t due to disinterest. Over the past 30 years, there had been numerous attempts to gain Planning Permission to reinstate this vital feature – yet all appeared to fall short.
HPA’s involvement commenced in 2019, enlisted by The Samling to restore the Jetty’s potential and by 2021, we had successfully secured Planning Approval. The original steps have been restored and the jetty has been designed to retain its historical timber structure. The Jetty is now open for use, offering an enhancement for sustainable transportation and the renewed opportunity for water sports to all guests and travelling visitors.
THE DUTCH BARN WINDOW
HPA were also entrusted by the Samling to adapt the building plan of a recently refurbished Dutch Barn, to allow for a monumental, panoramic window. We secured planning permission for the installation of the window onsite, handling construction tender details and working diligently to complete the construction within four months. We also retrofitted the building’s structure to benefit future sustainability and performance.
The Dutch Barn accommodates a restaurant and function room known as ‘The Gathering’. Standing at 2.1m by 8.4m, the new window offers magnificent, immersive views of the Lake and surrounding fells, increasing the advantages of the restaurant space.
