Surrounded by Derbyshire countryside, The Maynard is a 19-bedroom hotel with a dog friendly bar and a restaurant boasting spectacular views over Hope Valley. It has been decorated in a contemporary style whilst incorporating its original features to ensure the history of the building is not lost.
The refurbishment focused on reducing acoustic noise in the large, split level dining area, modernising the design and ensuring the history of the venue and the personality of the owner shined through.
A purpose-built, emerald green partition wall breaks up the dining space, its stunning yet serves a practical, noise reducing purpose. Its frame holds three, one of a kind, stained glass windows believed to date back to the 19th Century. These windows were sourced from an independent supplier in Portsmouth to suit the exact requirements of The Maynard’s style.
Bespoke elements continue throughout the restaurant; bronze effect gantry’s and a collection of beautiful, sound-absorbing furniture such as cosy fixed seating, padded chairs, large wall hangings and plenty of thick fabric accessories.
The views from the restaurant over the large garden and rolling hills of the Peak District are breath taking. New timber reveals around the windows is a fresh take on a traditional design feature which has been used to frame the view in a picturesque way.
