The Old Flax Shop

A curtilage-listed former flax shop, sensitively converted to create an individual holiday let celebrating its period features.

The building forms part of a former flax farm, occupying a lovely position tucked next to a former farmhouse, near to Bridport in the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.


The design approach was to minimise disruption to historic fabric and celebrate historic features where possible with careful consideration given to the bathroom and kitchen design to ensure that services could be sensitively inserted in to the building.

Existing materials where re-used where possible, this included cleaning and relaying the Staffordshire-blue pavers in the main living room and refurbishing and reusing an old workbench to create an up-cycled unit in the kitchen.
