How important were environmental considerations during this project?
My father developed the site from an old gravel pit in 1980, and it’s now a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) for nature, which we work hard to preserve and protect. As our home sits in the heart of the nature reserve, in the middle of the lakes that our guests enjoy on their holidays, it was really important that we chose materials and fittings from UK suppliers that share our environmental ethos. There’s Cotswold stone quarried less than a mile away, roof tiles from Kent and the glazing was made in the UK by Origin Global. And, of course, our hardware and fittings are sourced from nearby Corston, and are built to last.
