Cornish Cabins For Holiday Lets And Artisitic Retreats

Susie Ray, local Artist and previous client of Sprout, commissioned two holiday cabins for a site close to her new Artist Studio near St Merryn on the North Cornwall coast which were also designed and built by Martin.

The Project

Susie spent a lot of time researching the style and ambiance that she wanted to achieve in the cabins, bringing a number of concept boards to the initial design meetings.  She wanted the cabins to feel like a completely separate and self-contained haven for her guests.  Her ultimate goal was to achieve a rustic retreat which successfully combined eclecticism, luxury and comfort.

The Results

Martin lead the design team and worked closely with Susie to ensure that the project met her vision.  He took this project from drawing board to completion, including obtaining planning permission and arranging for services to be run to the virgin site.

"I have engaged Martin for two substantial building projects over the last 3 years, his support, honesty, attention to detail, tradesmen and working practices have been beyond reproach and I can't think of any company I would rather have managing a project of mine than Martin and his team. 
A to earth approach and a top level service."  Susie Ray

The cabins are now let to guests enjoying a quiet seaside break and artists who are on retreat with Susie at the studio or looking for some rugged North Cornish Coast inspiration.  The project was completed on time and on budget much to the delight of Susie and her partner Ollie who enjoyed the whole process.

Susie was kind enough to provide us with a number of images from throughout the build which shows the development of the site.
