Press and awards for Koeschi

Koeschi is the Stone Carving Workshop’s base, an amazing eco-house that we are privileged to rent from our family. A visit to the Stone Carving Workshop comes with the added perk of getting to look round the house and enjoy lunch under the clerestory windows of the dining room. We have had many a conversation about building, self-building and architecture over lunch on stone carving days. The house was designed by our nephew, Josh Penk, at the age of 19 and built by Josh, his parents and numerous friends, family members and volunteers. In October ’13, Josh won the accolade of ‘Best House 2013′ for Koeschi at the Build It self-build awards. Here is an article from the Cornish Guardian celebrating the win.

We also offer B&B at Koeschi and we feature in the Sawday’s Guide.  In October we were featured as one of 20 of the best Sawday’s B&Bs in the travel pages of the Guardian. We had a great response to the feature and the accompanying offer and have consequently had a busy autumn of B&B bookings. It’s always a great pleasure to share the house and show our B&B and carving guests around.
