A YORK timber construction company has completed work on a new equestrian centre for international hotel chain Four Seasons.

The Stable Company, in Osbaldwick, was contracted to create the new facility, which offers guests at the Hampshire-based hotel access to 14 stables, two 20 x 40 metre arenas, groom accommodation, and integrated tack room.

The project was proposed in late 2011 and took just over two years from design to completion, with The Stable Company working alongside architects and hotel management.

Gareth Barber, managing director of The Stable Company said: “As a Yorkshire firm, we are delighted to have this opportunity to showcase what we can do for such a prestigious client.

"The new equestrian centre is an exemplar for the results you can achieve when working with quality timber and a team which is passionate about the end product. Feedback has been excellent and we are sure guests will be thrilled with the facilities.”

The Stable Company was set up in 2002 with a focus on equestrian buildings.

Charlie Parker, general manager of Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire said: “Given the magnificent backdrop of our Georgian Manor House, it was imperative that our new stables not only complement, but enhance the immediate surroundings.

"Set on the site of the old dairy in 500 acres of parkland, both the design and finish needed to reflect the quality found within the Hotel itself.

“The Stable Company was chosen for two key reasons - the quality of their previous work and their willingness to work on something unique with us.”
