A model stone farmstead from the mid-19th Century, located on the Cotswold uplands above the world-famous village of Bibury which William Morriss claimed “surely the most beautiful village in England’
The farmstead consists of a large farmhouse with two courtyards to the north each with a series of farm buildings surrounding them. In the C 20th new steel portal frame barns had changed the historic layout of the farm.
We worked with the consultant team, leading the design team to obtain listed building consent for the conversion and extension to the barns to five residential units. This included all the layouts and detailed negotiations with conservation officers.
Collaborating with our clients George & Polly Phillips on their ideas to make each barn a unique luxury Cotswold getaway. We were client advisor to them, managed construction contracts and lead the design team through to handing over the finished homes ready for their guests to stay in.
The following pages give a flavour of each barn, but we really recommend staying to truly enjoy what can’t be captured by photographs or words.
