This beautiful building in the grounds of a mediaeval farmhouse  was  originally built as an animal house in the 18th Century, using many reclaimed timbers from the original farmhouse, which at that time was being underbuilt in brick. It was used for many years as a goat house, as was evidenced by the stalls and worn brick floor on the ground, with the upper floor likely being used for feed or storage. The owner wanted to use the goat house as guest accomadation, so we completely restored and converted the building for this use, using natural, breathable materials and lime plaster finishes throughout. Special consideration was given to the elements of the existing structure that should be ratained, to give the finished house the right balance between modern comfort and historical reference. A bedroom was provided on the first floor, while the ground floor contains a snug sitting area with a shower room.
