Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the original cottage was gutted and re-configured by BWA in 2004.
In 2011 the owners purchased the adjoining dilapidated cottage, allowing them to substantially extend their garden. After much consideration, it was decided to consolidate the volumes of the two cottages into one larger house. The new extension forms, with the existing volume, a south-facing L-shape sheltered terrace, creating a calm and sympathetic backdrop to the original cottage, and providing on ground floor a generous new kitchen/living/dining room overlooking the countryside, with a substantial new master bedroom suite on the first floor. Although more modern in its expression, the language of the new extension is strongly influenced by the local vernacular.
