ROCK COTTAGE

Making the most of the fantastic garden, full approval was gained to construct a contemporary rear extension + attic conversion

Within both Green Belt and Conservation Area designations, this required a light touch and a strong argument. We carefully controlled the overall area increase and aesthetics, making use of pre-app advice for feedback before the full application.

Chew Valley farm complex grows its B+B capacity

 

Jaw dropping views across the valley to the Victorian viaduct are just one of the reasons this former farm must be the nicest B+B I have ever visited. I haven't even mentioned the indoor pool and Jacuzzi yet, or the floor to ceiling glass dining room.

What was required here was some additional bed spaces courtesy of the existing redundant stables and garaging to the courtyard side of the complex, keeping the units flexible enough to offer both self-catering and traditional B+B accomodation as well as allowing wheelchair access and generous bathroom facilities for in-ambulant customers.

Full Planning Approval granted Christmas 2016

Full details published on completion of Building Regs approval

Beautiful Bath listed townhouse gets a total refurbishment.

 

This Grade II Listed House in Bath was in a rather sorry state due to a raft of ' modern improvements'  over the decades. In particular a concrete slab to the ground floor in the 1970's which was preventing any cross-ventilation beneath the building and causing significant damp problems. Cementitious plasters had been applied as well which added to these problems. Once we had stripped the fabric back to the bone and reinstated airflow and breathable lime mortars we had a dry envelope again which was a perfect blank canvas for a simple but chic refurb. Finishes were natural coir capets, slate and timber boards. Plenty of bespoke work such as new staircases, timber shutters, stone and ironwork.
