The Nare is an exclusive, privately owned 37 bedroom country house hotel, traditionally managed, yet with proprietorial presence and charm. It is considered to be the most comfortable hotel in Cornwall, with the highest standards of traditional hospitality and the personal touches that make for an exceedingly comfortable stay all year round.
Hotel Endsleigh is a Grade I historic house set in 100 acres of fairytale woodland, follies and grottos created by Humphry Repton. The Duke of Bedford, who owned a third of Devon, chose this spot for his fishing and hunting lodge.
18th century techniques based on traditional English workmanship and cabinet making are the root, whilst combining the benefits of durable and ecological new materials
I offer an individually tailored service. I am prepared to come to you personally, with the least possible disruption to yourselves and feed your furniture, remove watermarks, surface scratches (ie: legs of chairs and dining room tables especially). Fix loose veneers, dried and loose joints, bring the furniture back to a good colour and Fine Wax Finish. Should your furniture need more extensive work, I am happy to take it to the workshop.
"Nicholas Hill came and restored a badly damaged but modern wine table. He has done an excellent job (it looks like new), so much so, that I am going to have him back to restore some items of antique furniture."

After several years they were later removed during one of the many refits that the vessel undertook, the chandelier was then installed at the Grand hotel in Torquay until the late 1980s, where it was then acquired by the Moorlands House hotel in Haytor and hung recently
