Offering beautiful scenic views of the Freshford countryside
Nestled within private gardens, the new, sustainably renovated, Homewood Lodge is just a stone’s throw from the manor house and boasts 10 new, beautifully designed bedrooms, many of which benefit from views across the Avon Valley towards Bradford-on-Avon.
A sneak peak inside reveals a four metre, top to ground floor Bocci light in the hall that certainly ensures a wow welcome, all the rooms have beautiful wooden floors complete with underfloor heating in all the bathrooms and an array of different rugs, and four also feature their very own outdoor hot tub with private terrace or balcony.
Designed by the owner himself, in true ‘Kaleidoscope’ style, Ian Taylor has once again created some truly unique spaces; continually sourcing interesting artworks, collections, books, fabrics and lamps to give each room a personality of its own - we look forward to seeing the book room, the clock room and the light room, not to mention the room that will be fit for an artist in residence, thanks to Ian's recent purchase of 68 paint brushes - we are confident they won't disappoint!
Ian has worked with both local and international companies to design the 10 brand new, super stylish bedrooms and bathrooms:
Porter Bathrooms offer design that is craft-led and restrained rather than ornate and they shape timeless pieces rather than following fashions. Each and every creation is dictated by the beauty and durability of the natural materials that inform the Porter Aesthetic.
Sally Storey of John Cullen Lighting is one of the country’s leading lighting experts, pushing the boundaries of technology and design to create outstanding spaces and memorable experiences.
James Rogers, an expert in pigment analysis, colour matching and crucially block carving has been commissioned to hand block five different wallpaper designs for five of the lodge suites - it's a first for Homewood as Ian introduces wallpaper into the refurbishment mix.
Hawker Joinery are making all the built-in wardrobe areas along with minibars and the tea and coffee cabinets ensuring these functional elements feel part of the design and don't dominate.
