Spend a week in a Cornish holiday cottage built by Grand Designs designer, Ian Hogarth

GD Cornwall Comp

After completing their London Grand Designs project in 2011, Ian Hogarth and his wife Claire turned their attentions to the Cornish coast.

The couple, who run Hogarth Architects, decided to create four new homes in Bude, a seaside town on the northern coast of Cornwall.

Following on from his London project, notorious for its colourful interiors and basement dance floor, Hogarth painted the houses in bright, paint-box hues and gave them sleek, modern interiors.

Double-height spaces in the living and dining areas combine with large glazed panels to make the most of sea views, while ladders up to mezzanine levels and bright joinery give each building a sense of fun.

Each house includes a Poggenpohl kitchen, contemporary inset log burners, external decks and feature staircases in steel and birch ply, so they are sure to offer plenty of design inspiration. They are a stone’s throw away from the golf course and local beach, and outdoor showers are perfect for budding surfers.

We’ve teamed up with Hogarth Architects to offer one reader a seven- night stay in one of these charming self-catered cottages, which sleeps up to eight people and can also accommodate two dogs.
