Stuart House, Liskard, Cornwall

Options appraisal for the development of this 15th Century property

Project Description

Petersham Group were appointed by the Stuart House Trust to assess the options available to develop and showcase the heritage of Stuart House, a notable 15th Century property located in Liskeard, Cornwall.

This beautiful house is centrally located in the town but was little known by either residents or tourists. The trustees wished to significantly raise the profile of the house, to widen access and to ensure that the property would be financially self-supporting in the long run.

Petersham Group ran workshop sessions with the trustees and went on to develop an interpretation strategy and a master plan to open up and showcase the historic story of the house to be implemented over the course of the subsequent 5-year period.

We also developed a business plan to allow the Trust to plan ahead, expanding the programme of events, stimulating an increase in visitor numbers and broadening the appeal of the house to the local community.

The house is now much better known and is used for a wide variety of sympathetic purposes, including art exhibitions and performances, whilst volunteers run a popular café throughout the week.
