Koeschi is a unique and secluded B & B just four miles from the Eden Project. Enjoy your own private garden and living room in this award winning eco home. Koeschi is hidden away in peaceful woodland but has easy access to the Eden Project and Cornwall’s north and south coasts . The spacious B & B suite has floor to ceiling windows which look out onto the woods and stream. A french door opens from the bedroom onto a quiet corner of the garden and your own decked area.
The name Koeschi is derived from Cornish meaning ‘house in the woods’. It is set in eleven acres of private bluebell woods, this is a place of real seclusion. The house is built to high environmental standards with triple glazed windows and wool insulation throughout the walls and roof. In winter, heat and hot water come from a wood burning stove serving under-floor heating. In the summer, most of ther hot water comes from a solar thermal panel. The house has a green roof that has been planted with sedum and colonised by a wide range of local flora including foxgloves and red campion.
For those with an interest in green building, Koeschi is a great example eco design features and innovative use of materials and was featured in the November 2012 edition of Build It magazine. The construction of Koeschi was a real labour of love and the owners will be happy to tell you more and show you around the building.
The look of the house is strongly influenced by modernist architecture and by Japanese design. Among the famous buildings that inspired Koeschi are the Philip Johnson Glass House and Falling Water. The interior is very calm and peaceful. The interior design reflects the building’s influences and features classic mid century furniture, along with original art, sculpture and ceramics. There is even a stone carving studio very close with works in progress whilst you stay.
