A Country Hotel
Overlooking water meadows, this wonderfully positioned hotel is made up of two properties of distinctly different styles of architecture. One dating from early in the 18th century, the other built a hundred years later.
The aim was to visually unify the two buildings, to ensure all sat comfortably in the rural setting and for maintenance to be kept to a minimum.
The chimneys of the early eighteenth century property were the inspiration behind planting evergreen topiary trees to echo the architecture and give year round interest. The pale underside and undulating edges of the Quercus ilex leaves sit well alongside the flint work of the buildings.
