A unique opportunity
This pioneering project is quite unlike any other we had ever attempted before, explains Managing Director, Stuart Cock.
“It is extremely rare to be allowed to build homes near the protected landscape of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, so we found ourselves with a unique opportunity,” he says.
Setting the scene
Between the church and hamlet, a wildflower meadow was carefully retained to suggest what might have originally been a village common.
Horkesley Hamlet had to weave its narrative of the past, while also sitting comfortably within the modern day and offering quality and attraction well into the future.
