Slebech Park Estate
December 2, 2013, 10:48am

Following the purchase of the whole estate earlier this summer by a British Virgin Islands Company, a team, led by Gareth Scourfield, has submitted planning and listed building applications to the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority for its change of use to a luxury hotel and leisure complex.

The proposals will ensure that the long-term future of the listed mansion and its historic gardens is safeguarded, and as well as providing over 50 bedrooms (including some family friendly Eco-lodges) as are currently on site at the Celtic Manor Resort), there will be a pool and spa, function room capable of holding 300 guests, a palmhouse/riverside hide for relaxation, plus many other ancillary leisure facilities, including a bespoke equestrian centre.

It is hoped that the Parks Planning Committee will visit site before the Christmas break, and vote favourably with regard to the applications in early 2014, as the new owners have an ambitious multi-million pound 4 - 5 year procurement programme for the works, which are to be carried out in three phases and will create a further 120 full time jobs, in addition to the 30 currently on site, as well as 100 - 150 jobs in construction.
