The Old Hall is a 16th century Grade 2* listed manor house situated within the Ramsden Village Conservation Area. The project replaces a range of poor quality outbuildings and a raised swimming pool with a new sunken pool and large Pool House to accommodate poolside facilities, a self-contained guest suite, extended garaging and an artist’s studio. This was all set within a new walled garden that extended and enhanced the sequence of formal and informal spaces that surround the old manor house.

 

The new buildings provide many modern facilities but are constructed from traditional materials using traditional building techniques. The layout, orientation and massing has been designed to appear as a working farm with the main Pool House forming a large traditional barn, albeit converted to domestic use.
