Introducing Coachman’s House

6th December 2022

This idyllic self-catered farmhouse is ideal for larger groups of friends and family gatherings.

We are delighted to launch Coachman’s House, a spacious four-bedroom bolthole located opposite The Fox.

The old farmhouse overlooks Lower Oddington village, which itself is steeped in history, dating back to at least Anglo-Saxon times.

The oldest part of Coachman’s House was built in the seventeenth century from local oolitic limestone, formed in the seabed 200 million years ago. More recently it has been part of the thriving farming community.

The restoration process was led by our in-house team of architects, drawing inspiration from the original fabric of building.

 

Traditional skills were adopted to sympathetically repurpose beams, oak floorboards, expose stone floors and reveal hidden stairways.

Where possible materials were recycled; the roof is insulated with sheep’s wool, using the clip from Lleyn sheep at Daylesford farm, and hides from the cattle herd have been turned into window seats.

A large inglenook fireplace was exposed and carefully restored in the living area, forming the heart of the property, and providing a welcoming place to relax and unwind.

Bespoke design details include hand carved kitchen oak cabinetry by local craftsmen using techniques dating back to the stone age with an adze wood chipping tool, resulting in a completely unique finish. Handmade tiles work in harmony with the natural woodwork.

Supporting local artisans, our design team commissioned metal workers from a nearby forge to produce bespoke wrought iron handrails and a four-poster bed. Willow workers from the Gloucestershire Guild of Craftsmen have beautifully woven our lampshades, while carpenters have created bespoke furniture using traditional joinery skills.

Interiors feature bespoke commissioned pieces combined with vintage textiles, objects sourced from around the world, antiques, and Daylesford homewares.

An open plan kitchen is fully equipped with Daylesford kitchenware and serveware. All bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms and are stocked with the much loved Bamford Bath & Body collection.

Prices for Coachman’s House start from £800 per night, for a minimum 2 night stay. Click here for availability.
