Less than 13 miles from our Ulverston based workshop, across the Leven Estuary sits the stunning village of Cartmel. This historic picturesque medieval village steeped in history boasts many fine awards and accolades.
Cartmel has grown up around its magnificent 12th century Priory Church which stands proud alongside many top quality shops, eateries and accommodation. Most famously Cartmel is home to Simon Rogan's Michelin Star L'Enclume, a fine dining experience which welcomes world-wide visitors who instantly fall in love with the simplicity and charm which Cartmel has to offer.
One of our latest private commissions sits neatly in a quiet lane off the village centre overlooking the Priory where owner Rachel Holcroft has renovated a former council owned roller shed into an exclusive holiday let just for two. In days gone by, the roller shed housed a steam roller used on the roads in and around the village.
Following the transformation by local builder Joe Shaw, The Old Roller Shed boasts the finest fixtures and fittings and oozes quality both inside and out. The property is split over two levels with a clever mezzanine which forms a beautiful bedroom with views across the Lakeland fells.
A stunning Chris Brammall hand-crafted steel staircase featuring oak treads and toughened glass leads from the open plan ground floor to the mezzanine level. Chris worked closely with owner Rachel to design a bespoke staircase which complemented the modern refurbishment of the property to provide a focal feature in a very simple space.
The staircase and hand-rail were manufactured in our Ulverston workshop and transported to site in full pieces with the solid oak treds and toughened glass added by teams of specialists. All work was carried out to the highest quality workmanship which all Chris Brammall pieces portray.
The finished result is more than just a practical staircase instead creating a unique feature in this stunning property which provides the ideal location for a romantic weekend retreat in Cartmel - one of the most picturesque villages in Cumbria.
