Fowler’s House, Daylesford Cottages – Gloucestershire
The original pioneer of sustainable luxury, Daylesford’s cottages encapsulate the brand’s ethos of beautiful, thoughtful design. Fowler’s House is the largest of the collection, sleeping up to eight adults and four children, with a spacious dining room, farmhouse kitchen with a large wooden table seating 12, two spacious sitting rooms and bunk beds in the attic room. Outside, the large sweeping terrace offers uninterrupted views across farmland. Carole Bamford and her team of architects worked alongside local craftsmen and artisans to carefully renovate the historic buildings, restoring reclaimed timber beams and exposing the original Cotswolds stone walls. The surrounding countryside is celebrated throughout, with hazel branches felled from the Daylesford estate to form architectural features, hooks and rails, and wool from Daylesford Organic Farm’s sheep used to insulate the roofs and make woollen blankets. The interiors are a combination of antique pieces sourced from around the world, bespoke and furniture reupholstered with vintage fabrics, and Daylesford homewares.
