The Fleece at Ruleholme

An oak framed building with external oak veranda for this stunning venue

Location: Cumbria, England

Completed: 2021

Architect: Ashwood Design Associates

Main contractor: JB Black

Constraints: Fabricated and installed when covid lockdowns permitted, challenging all involved

A complete new build venue using oak and stone throughout and the skills of craftspeople to create a traditional building.

The Fleece at Ruleholme, in Cumbria, opened its doors in November 2021 as a modern, luxury venue with a traditional heart, reflecting the hospitality there has been on this site for hundreds of years.

As part of the build and to ensure this traditional heart could be incorporated, the owners wanted an oak frame in elements of the new building. They approached a local carpenter and timber framer to do the work, Rob Fairweather, who sought a collaborative approach with Carpenter Oak due to the scale and programme of the project.
