Exciting new plans are afoot at the Pipe and Glass for next spring, with the addition of three new rooms for overnight accommodation. The Pipe already has, of course, two gorgeous boutique suites to let for those who don’t fancy the drive home after dinner: the sumptuous goldand- aubergine Thyme, and the sleek and movie-starry silver-and-black Sage.
By next summer, they should have been joined by three new double rooms with the same luxurious specifications. The five rooms will have complete privacy from each other for those who want it, with screened verandas, but share an outdoor living area, centring on a new herb garden to replace the one that will have been sacrificed to the new rooms. Kate says: “Our two suites are in huge demand, and often booked up months in advance, so it makes sense to expand. It also means that we can offer more flexible packages to our guests – a group of five couples celebrating something special, for instance, could book the private dining area upstairs, and then have the luxury of retiring for the night to their own room, with breakfast in bed, or in fine weather outside in the shared dining area, the following morning.”
Plans have been drawn up by the Skerne-based Yorkshire Design Partnership and, subject to planningpermission, work is due to start on the new rooms next March.
