New luxury cottage in Pembrokeshire! At East Jordeston Cottages we are all very excited to introduce ‘The Lodge’, a former holiday bungalow, which over the past two years has undergone a super stylish makeover!
During the very cold winter of 2010 the detached cottage suffered serious water damage following burst pipes in the attic, so rather than repair it like for like, a family decision was made to say goodbye to the endearing bungalow as it was and bring it right up to date with a clever architectural renovation.
Phil got to grips with an ambitious design, whilst Jamie enjoyed the workout of the demolition, resulting in the cottage being stripped back to its four sad looking block walls. During fine summer weather a massive crane installed the fantastic laminated wooden structure and the new house (it now has an upstairs!) began to take shape. Months of decision making and hard work – much of it done by the family, with specialist tradesmen brought in when required – has come to fruition and the property has been reborn as a fabulous, spacious 3 bedroom (all en suite) dream escape!
Previous guests to East Jordeston may well remember the pre 2010 image of the original bungalow which itself was spacious, open plan and enjoyed sunlight from every aspect. Returning guests who have seen the renovation in progress have commented that it rivals many a ‘Grand Designs’ project! We look forward to welcoming all visitors to The Lodge and getting their views on the new chic retreat – bookings are being taken now from late June throughout the summer.
