Holiday Cottages: Cumbria

Three holiday lets on a sensitive site within the Lake District National Park.

The new build scheme is designed to minimise impact on its setting adjacent to the River Rothay. The three units are arranged in a single storey radial plan set into the hillside. Each unit enjoys spectacular views to open countryside but privacy from its neighbour. Large glazed panels to the principle elevation are set between piers of natural Lakeland slate.

Extensive computer modelling was undertaken to demonstrate that the proposal would sit sensitively in its surroundings.
