Luxurious Cameley Lodge

It used to be that a beautiful farmhouse in a stunning countryside setting would be enough to tempt us from our all-mod-cons city homes with the forever-England promise of unspoilt beauty and lung-filling fresh air.

For businesses, throw in the added promise of occasional electricity and a conference room with four walls, most of its roof still intact, and you've got yourself a bona fide Corporate entertainment facility. How times change. These days beauty has to be more than skin deep.

Cameley Lodge has seldom had to worry on either score. Owned and run by John and Paula Harris the Lodge has been pulling in the corporate bigwigs for a long time. A quick tour of the facilities and you can easily see the appeal - the lodge sits in the heart of a landscape nabbed from a Constable canvas.

Determined to retain the personal touch and an individually tailored, customer-focus, they called in long-time associate Jim Heal at Rudge Brothers & James to oversee the specialist flooring and en-suite needs.

Happy to rely on RBJ's expertise, experience and impartial advice, John simply handed Jim the budget, requesting only a personal assurance that the required statutory regulations would be met and that the family-run spirit of the Lodge itself would be upheld.

In the end it has been positively enhanced. Deluxe Axminster carpet adds greatly to the luxurious feel of the lounge, main bar and frontal sweep while safety-conscious Altro Impressionist safety vinyls ensure conditions are as clean as they are accident free...should one of the wedding guests or business clients become...erm... tired and emotional at the end of a long day. Guests bedrooms have also been fitted with upmarket Brintons Bell twist fitted traditionally on underlay and gripper adding warmth and underfoot comfort at the end of a hard day.

Due to the speed required for the new flooring to the extended kitchen a liquid damp proof system was called utilised by RBJ before fitting more Altro safety vinyl. Overall, Cameley Lodge has managed the very difficult trick of creating a modern, stylish interior while maintaining character and integrity within its wonderful setting.
