Buttercombe Gridshells

Editorial Description

Life in the peaceful farmlands of the Cotswolds is quiet and simple and these lovely dome shaped gridshells are the perfect place to escape from the fast pace of the city. You will be surrounded by green fields, grazing cows and sheep, gently swaying groves of trees and beautifully crafted historic farmhouses. Keep an eye out for wildlife and birds – there is a good chance that you will spot pheasants and owls. This luxurious property consists of two elegantly design dome shaped structures, as well as a stone barn complete with open fireplaces and an indoor/outdoor dining area.

These spacious gridshells are appointed with high-quality king sized beds, sofas, comfy beanbags and an iPod dock and radio. When you arrive, you will be greeted with a welcome hamper that includes bread, milk and butter. You will also have access to hot showers, real flush toilets and a well-equipped kitchen in the stone barn so that you can self-cater. Since these two domes are next to each other, they made an ideal retreat for large groups or families.

These dome structures are made from timber laths, which are woven together in a diagonal pattern to create a lightweight dome. These domes are spacious and inside you will find a living area with a fireplace, rugs and furniture with comfy sheepskin throws. The domes have luxurious king sized beds and dimmable LED lighting. You will stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter, thanks to the electric fans and heaters within each shell.

The retreat is within a very short distance from the nearby Cotswold Country Park and Beach, where you can check out the local farm shops, enjoy some seasonal local fruit from the market or grab some lunch at the local pub. Take your time and savour the moment – so that you can enjoy the quiet pace of life in the Cotswolds.


Two beautiful dome shaped Gridshells all to yourself, located in stunning Cotswold farmland with shared stone barn and decking area. A perfect spot to enjoy nature, surrounded by cows grazing and pheasants wandering freely on the elegant Great Tew Estate.

Each Gridshell has been hand-made using timber laths woven diagonally to form a featherweight dome. These incredible structures offer guests a perfect cosy snug from which to enjoy the surrounding countryside.
