A renowned Warrington based interior design and architecture firm has been appointed…

…by The Mere Collection to work alongside the management team to spearhead the redesign and refurbishment of the much-loved Cheshire icon, The Stanneylands, Wilmslow.

Headed by Managing Director Lee Birchall, DV8 Designs will be responsible for aligning the vision of the new ‘best of British dining destination with rooms’ concept, which is set to be popular amongst the local neighbourhood as well as the region.

As part of the internal and external refurbishment of the classic Cheshire institution, a series of renovations will transform the country house into an elegant boutique hideaway ideal for celebrations, dining and drinking.

Notable design aspects include the introduction of The Tap & Pantry and The Grill, which have been devised for those seeking a fabulous British classic food and drink experience with a twist.
Lee said: “Having been appointed by such prominent figures in Cheshire’s hospitality scene, the team and I are thrilled to have joined forces with owners Mark Boler and Gary Corbett to begin work to bring the exciting new vision to life.

While The Stanneylands will take some inspiration from The Mere, given that it is the second property in the hospitality collection, the new Stanneylands will become renowned as a dining destination along with a special events venue. It will capture the very best of modern British and will be complemented by a twist of classic country house décor meets stylish home comforts.”

Located in Warrington, DV8 Designs have attained high acclaim through their impressive and diverse portfolio that includes residential, bars, pubs, restaurants, hotels, leisure centres, swimming pools, spas, golf clubs and offices.

Mark Boler said: “As part of The Mere Collection, The Stanneylands brand aims to mirror the same established quality, whilst having its own distinctive personality and characteristics. We are very excited to have Lee and the team on board to help us to re-engineer the venue to deliver our vision. The new aspirational brand will act as a lively neighbourhood hotspot for get-togethers amongst families, friends and work colleagues, all the while providing the finest British dining experience with an impeccable service. The Stanneylands is the perfect fit to spearhead our ambition to develop and grow The Mere Collection.”
