Cottage Entrance

This country cottage has been lovingly restored and improved by the owners who wanted a simple and appropriate paving to give a sitting and entrance area at the front of the house. We designed and built this scheme which includes raised brick benches to give some definition to this area and retain a change in level, and included within them some lighting to light the area up at night. The flagstones we chose are a new limestone flag which are similar to the flagstones laid inside the house and give a sense of continuity when the French doors are open in nice weather. We recycled some old blue paving bricks which were on the site to add details to the paving and seating.
