1548 building restored to it’s former grandeur

From the 16th to the 21st century, a careful renovation.

One of the projects we are most proud of has to be the restoration of the Chequers Hotel in Pulborough.

This charming hotel nestling in the heart of the Sussex Downs was looking very down at heel, its stunning history hidden under layer of peeling render, shabby woodwork and faded paint.

With the building dating back to 1548 we had to be incredibly sympathetic and ensure that everything we carried out was in keeping the splendour of hotel, maintaining its history whilst bringing it back to life.

They say a picture speaks a thousand words, in this case it is certainly true, browse through the pictorial tale of the renovation from start to finish.

Chequers really is such a charming hotel and we are delighted (as are the owners) with the finish achieved.

Stable Painting & Decorating

West Sussex is renowned for its love of horses, think Goodwood Races and The Cowdray Gold Cup for starters!

Synonymous with this is the ample amount of stabling and livery yards dotted around these areas.

It used to be that these were simply functional places to stable your horses – and of course this is still mainly the case.

We have in recent years been commissioned to undertake a higher more decorative specification instead of the standard finish – primarily as these areas are more frequently being used for celebrating the season’s achievements.

Functional and fantastic I’m sure you’ll agree.
