The Freeth

When Peta and Ivor Clifton came across The Freeth, a former late 15th century hunting lodge on the, it was seemingly derelict, despite being inhabited by two bachelor brothers, both born and eventually died there.

It had an outside loo, water was drawn from a well, electricity cables were tacked on walls and some floors were simply earth. The potential, though, shone through and the couple, together with their new born son, moved in and began the slow process, room by room, of restoring the old now grade 11 listed house and adjoining barn, which ultimately they incorporated. This piecemeal approach meant that much of the character of the old building, parts dating back to the late 15th century, was retained. Their home became more of a warren than fashionable open plan, with at least three staircases, and beamed rooms eked out of the eaves. Peta oversaw, and lived with, all the restoration work and, with an eye for design, furnished and decorated the property with great panache. The result is a rambling, higgledy-piggledy, cosy yet spacious, Grade 11 listed home which sits on the edge of the Netherfield estate, Worcestershire.
