Dated to 1580, with an 18th century addition, this ancient cob building is being sensitively restored by its current owners.

“As soon as we saw it, we knew this could be a lovely family home.  The previous owner had gradually retreated into fewer and fewer rooms and we’re slowly re-inhabiting the place, carefully restoring it, room by room.  This end of the house, which is now the heart of our home, had been neglected for years and needed some significant repairs to the cob, new ceiling joists and restoration of the flagstone floor. 

Dave and his team approached the project in the right spirit, re-using materials wherever possible, demonstrating real competence with the structural repairs and getting the detailing just right.  We still have a lot of work to do, but it’s been inspiring to see this major transformation take place.”
