Methodist Chapel

Originally converted into a small Methodist Chapel in 1862 and finally decommissioned a century later in the 1960s, this Cotswold cottage's life since as a holiday rental eventually took its toll, rendering it a bit sad, decrepit and lacking in soul.

By demolishing later structural partitions and devising a new compact bathroom on the flying mezzanine, the original worship space opened up. ... to gift a more generous living area. Then using a warm plaster and timber palette, with vintage furniture nodding to its ecclesiastical past, its lost vitality and spirit bounced back. 

"Our simple goal to transform the chapel into a relaxing bolthole was actually more complex than we first imagined...

No surprises there then!

Cid's collaboration was critical... steering us through technical issues as well as aesthetic ones. So together we breathed

the mojo back into an honourable old building... and landed our country dream."
