GIA: 905m2

The Alice Hawthorn is the last remaining pub in the village of Nun Monkton. New local owners aimed to secure its future by adding guest bedrooms within the listed inn and in three new buildings around a grass courtyard on its former car park.

Inspired by the informal character of adjacent farmyards, the well-proportioned ensemble is at ease with the rural setting. Materials are robust and agricultural: larch, wire-brushed concrete and corrugated steel. Rooms are simple, unfussy and exude quality, with exposed frames of Douglas fir complemented by well-chosen soft furnishings. Warm touches include artwork by local schoolchildren.

British-grown timber, a ground-source heat pump and high levels of airtightness earned an EPC ‘A’ rating and helped to secure the regional Sustainability Award.
