A pub that was ravished by fire is set to launch 11 new boutique guestrooms.
Last summer a fire destroyed the outbuildings at the Olde Coach House in Ashby St Ledgers, Northamptonshire.
Nobody was hurt in the blaze but it destroyed the accommodation quarters at the pub.
A year on and the pub is opening its new luxury letting rooms this week.
Licensee Mark Butler said “We were absolutely devastated when the fire took hold last year.
“However with (pubco) Charles Wells’ support we have managed to turn it into a real positive by enhancing our accommodation with 11 brand new boutique rooms for our guests.
Ashby St Ledger is a beautiful village so we have people coming from near and far to stay and we also host a number of weddings which means our hotel trade is key for business.”
To put a local stamp on the rooms, Mark has named each one after a surrounding village except one, which has been christened the Guy Fawkes room as a nod to the Gunpowder Plot, which was planned in Ashby St Ledgers.
