EXCITING NEW ROSE GARDEN
WYNYARD HALL HOTEL
Tees Valley’s Wynyard Hall Hotel will embark on a £4m investment plan, including the development of a cookery school, creating 50 jobs.
The hotel recently received planning permission to redevelop its walled garden and develop a cookery school, event space and accommodation, and visitor centre and café.
At the centre of the development will be a new Rose Garden which will mark the culmination of a long-held dream by the hall’s owner, Sir John Hall.
The plans for the Rose Garden include planting the biggest variety of roses in Europe along with water features, statues, Italian terraces and picnic areas– ensuring it will become a major tourist attraction in the North East.
Paul Mackings, chief executive for Cameron Hall Developments which owns Wynyard Hall, said: “The new plans stay true to Sir John Hall’s vision which is to create a wonderful space full of roses.
“I can’t emphasise enough how excited we are about these new plans – we want Wynyard Hall and its grounds to be a place for everyone to enjoy. We intend that the new Rose Garden and Visitor Centre will be somewhere that people will want to visit time and time again.
“Alongside the pure enjoyment of visiting the gardens throughout the year we also hope that our passion and commitment to providing the widest of rose species will encourage interest for horticulturists both here and abroad.“
Wynyard Hall say the development will create 40 full time, and 20 part time jobs.
Allison Antonopoulos, managing director of Wynyard Hall, said: “She was delighted that the plans had been given the green light.
“The development of the Walled Garden will allow us to continue with the restoration and development of this magnificent stately home for future generations to enjoy.“
