UK: Construction firm Stepnell has completed a £6.75 million project to bring a luxury golf club and hotel to the Cotswolds.
The 13-bedroom hotel at Feldon Valley golf club has been built by the contractor, which also oversaw the construction of four woodland lodges, and the extension and remodelling of the existing clubhouse.
The project was delivered while the club remained open to members, ensuring it maintained its existing revenue streams while the build was in progress.
Providing accommodation for up to 50 guests, the hotel and lodges complement the transformation of the clubhouse building, which includes the redesign of the interior layout and the creation of enhanced external terraces overlooking the 18-hole golf course.
The hotel and woodland lodges are linked by an elevated boardwalk, with the buildings clad in high-quality, naturally weathering materials that ensure the development is fully in keeping with the countryside setting of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Rob Speirs, regional director at Stepnell, said the finished project would bring an added dimension to the club’s offering.
He said: “One of the key parts of our brief was to deliver something that enhances the club and surrounding area for non-members, and we’re happy to have stepped up to meet the challenge.
“The work at Feldon Valley was essentially three projects in one. As well as an extensive refurbishment job on the existing clubhouse, the need to build both a two-storey hotel and four high-quality woodland lodges – all while allowing the club to stay open for business – gave us the opportunity to demonstrate the variety of our expertise.
“It is a testament to our teams on-site that the project was delivered to an incredibly high standard while ensuring minimal disruption for the club’s regular users,” he added.
