Chastleton Stables

Chastleton House is described as ‘a rare gem of Jacobean Country House’. 


It is owned and managed by the National Trust and is open to the public to visit in restricted numbers.  At the time of our appointment, Trust staff were based in the house itself, in a number of unheated rooms temporarily furnished as offices.  The arrangement was unsatisfactory, both in terms of poor working conditions for the staff and detracting from the experience of the visitor.  Importantly, the fabric of the Grade I listed house was suffering. 


After consideration of a number of options, we made detailed proposals for converting the upper floor - hayloft - of the Estate stables. We worked closely with the Trust and English Heritage to agree an appropriate scheme and to secure consent for the conversion of the Grade II* listed building, which included new access, insulation, services, openings and structural alterations, and included new ASHP heating.  We were appointed for all stages from inception to completion.
