Eco lodges & site wide lmprovement
Highbullen is based around a magnificent country house that is believed to have been built in 1879. The building is not Listed however it is a fine example of the architecture that emerged from the Arts & Crafts movement of the time.
Highbullen has been run as a hotel for over 50 years. The current owner purchased the Hotel in September 2012 as a long term investment, rescuing it from being in administration and unviable as a business, which situation unfortunately befell the previous owners.
Since September 2012 Highbullen has seen in excess of £5 million invested by the new owners in refurbishing the main building, upgrading services installations across the estate, the construction of The Palazzo, a new function / events venue, as well as improving the golf and tennis facilities.
In the Summer of 2013 the principle of a site wide strategy for continuing improvement & expansion works was discussed and in December 2013 Peregrine Mears Architects (PMA) were invited to work in developing a masterplan for the estate.
