Cherry Orchard Barns, Holiday Lets, Herefordshire
Set on a working fruit and livestock farm in the midst of beautiful rolling countryside overlooking a lake.
When I first visited Cherry Orchard Barns only two of the four barns were completed, the remaining two were simply agricultural barns. My task was to completely furnish them to a high standard suitable for rental purposes. Working closely with a great builder and his team we set about retaining as many original features as possible from oak beams, roof trusses and stone walls together with sympathetically adding new features that would look as though they had been there forever. The key was to be able to offer the possibility of renting a single barn or the whole courtyard or four barns for larger groups.
“….all I can say is that your work has been absolutely wonderful. The finish to our four barns is way beyond our expectations” Clive Richards OBE
As this barn is connected to Summersun with the option of using both for multiple occupancy I needed to make sure that the rooms flowed but felt different. I achieved this by using similar fabrics in a different colour. I used warm tones of purples and naturals with pops of pattern, checks and wools to create a country feel. Furniture and fabrics needed to be hardwearing but comfortable and cosy.
