The name is a nod to its original title: Conygree Farm – an Anglo Saxon word meaning rabbit enclosure.
More recently it was the Tollgate Inn; a building constructed in Cotswolds stone with beautiful proportions, known for its convivial atmosphere and unusual double fireplace.
Work on The Wild Rabbit began in March 2013. Our aim was to open out the space and let in natural light, to strip back the layers and reveal the bones of the building.
Working with a team of experienced craftsmen, we set out to make a contemporary working building using centuries-old techniques.
Our sister farm is one of the most sustainable farms in the UK and home to the original Daylesford farmshop. Stock up on organic groceries, meat and cheese in the shop and enjoy breakfast, lunch, tea or supper in the Daylesford cafe. www.daylesford.com
