Julia and Nick Davies, the new owners of 30-bedroom The Cottage in the Wood in the Malvern Hills, are about to begin a complete £2.5 million refurbishment project.

Starting in January 2017 with the restoration of The Main House back to its Georgian glory, the project will honour the property and the surrounding location’s history, including links with literary greats and good friends C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien, and the composer Elgar.

London-based interior design studio Nelson Design has been hired by Julia and Nick to redesign the entire property comprising of The Main House, with a 2 AA Rosette restaurant, bar and lounge and seven bedrooms, Beech Cottage with four bedrooms, and The Coach House with 19 bedrooms.

Refurbishment schedule:
·         The Main House relaunch in April 2017
·         All 30 bedrooms to be refurbished in 2018/2019
·         Building of the orangery – 2020
·         New spa - 2021

The Main House redesign overview - Georgian grey, stunning nature-themed aesthetics, classic modern chandeliers and mirrors to reflect the spectacular views over the Malvern Hills will be incorporated into the redesign of the restaurant.
Elsewhere in The Main House, the design will create cosy, colourful and eclectic areas, with deep blue bookcases stacked with literary classics, design books and more. Georgian green walls will be adorned with old photographs of the local area, an image of Elgar and a contemporary painting of a traditional Malvern gas lamp by a local artist.
