Environment at The Wild Rabbit
The Wild Rabbit is part of the Daylesford estate – one of the most sustainable organic farms in the UK.
The principles that have guided our farm for 40 years are also at the heart of everything that we do at The Wild Rabbit – from the locally sourced, organic ingredients in our kitchens, to the handmade horsehair mattresses in our bedrooms. Find out more.
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.
