The Farmer’s Arms, Woolsery
Since reopening, The Farmer’s Arms, Woolsery has received much attention for its innovative mix of architecture, interior design and gastronomy. Its use of UK Hardwood’s real wood flooring has been mentioned in interior magazines and hospitality design brochures. Following a six year closure, the transformation of The Farmer’s Arms is part of a new project by Michael and Xochi Birch, founders of Bebo in 2005.
With strong family links to the quaint Devon village that they have passionately restored, every attention to detail has been included in their designs. Requesting real wood flooring throughout their project was one of the most important design briefs given to Hannah Lohan, interior designer, and one which UK Hardwoods was able to meet.
The manor farm will be the source of food for the restaurant, and the restored hotel is only a short stroll away from the shop and pub. Keeping local values and workmanship thriving remains an inherent value throughout the project and into the village’s new life.
The importance of locality is demonstrated through the Estate Oak Range which was laid throughout. The carpenters requested tongue and groove flooring for the project, which UK Hardwoods happily provided.
