Location: Stoke by Nayland, Suffolk
Our newest project, with the groundworks just beginning, The Angel Inn has been undergoing major restoration during lockdown. It is a C16th coaching inn in the historic village of Stoke by Nayland, not far from Colchester, right in the middle of Constable country.
The former stables are being converted into luxurious accommodation and Tom’s brief is to link this to the Inn with formal, traditional gardens. Intimate dining areas will dot the gardens, each one surrounded by planting for a room-like atmosphere. An arts and crafts style pergola will divide the garden up whilst visually linking the stable to the Inn.
