Coombes Everitt commended in The Sunday Times British Homes Awards

Designed by local design practice coombes:everitt architects, Poachers Cottage has been commended in the ‘One off House and Extension’ category at this year’s prestigious Sunday Times British Homes Awards. The awards celebrate the UK’s most impressive homes. 

The local practice, based in Winchcombe, was commended for their extension to the cottage. The judges chose to commend the scheme, because of the way the design not only preserved the nature of the cottage and its conservation setting, but on how it added a contemporary and modern space to a historic Cotswold cottage.

The owners of Poachers Cottage wanted open plan living, with lots of natural light and a better relationship between home and garden. Now living in their new home the owners spoke of how the property has completely transformed the way they live through its relationship with the outside space.
