A Paragon of Upcycling Deftly Executed

 

A passion for upcycling and a curious exploration of the unexpected are what makes this unique home stay so special. This charmingly kooky self-catering abode began life as a store for the cart which the neighbouring mill’s horse dutifully pulled upstream in the 1700s. Today this luxury cottage in Cirencester is a beguiling melange of the industrial and the romantic, all sat upon a tiny island accessed solely by a humpback bridge.

The spirit of upcycling carries throughout; eclectic statement pieces reconstructed from pre-loved items and revamped vintage finds fill the interiors with a jovial and amiable personality. Curtains made from old Hungarian sacks, a vintage pulley system as clothes hanger in place of the traditional closet, and recycled milk bottles for shampoo and bubble bath are just a few examples.

This quirky self-catering abode sleeps up to two with one bedroom and an adjoining bathroom that features a roll top bath with shower over. The kitchen is fully equipped with a coffee maker, an electric oven and a microwave. There is also a washer, dryer, and parking for one car.
