Kenwood House seeks operator for its Stables block

Kenwood House in north London is looking for a commercial partner to run a food-led operation at its Grade II-listed Stables block, which it plans open to the public for the first time.

The historic property, overlooking Hampstead Heath, is due to relaunch in autumn 2013 following a refurbishment of Kenwood House and Kenwood Dairy.

English Heritage is now also seeking an operator to transform the Kenwood Stables into a new space for the community and visitors. It hopes to reopen the space in 2014 as a local farm or lifestyle shop with a complementary food offer.

Alex Sydney, English Heritage's head of historic properties in London, said: "We want to create a space where visitors to Kenwood can relax and enjoy themselves and we are now looking for a partner to help us deliver this vision.

"The repair and transformation of the Kenwood Stables will mean that for the very first time, the whole of the estate will be open to the public. To put it simply, this project is the final piece in the Kenwood jigsaw."

The Kenwood Stables were built between 1794 and 1796 to the designs of the architect George Saunders as part of a wider re-modelling of the Kenwood Estate.

English Heritage has instructed Davis Coffer Lyons.
