A refurbished annexe cottage to a bed & breakfast

Daisybank Cottage was built in 1901 and is situated in the heart of the New Forest. The main cottage on the site is an award-winning boutique bed & breakfast and boasts some beautiful Arts and Crafts architectural features.

The architect was commissioned to renovate the original gardener's cottage located to the rear of the property.

The design objective was to both retain the simple and rustic vernacular qualities of the garden cottage whilst making efficient use of space and natural light.

Locally sourced New Forest timber boarding and a corrugated fibre cement sheet were used for the building’s exterior complementing the existing cottage and vernacular New Forest architecture.

Additionally to the garden cottage building, the practice designed a landscape scheme to improve and further enhance the relationship between the main house and cottage.
