When Judith and Martin bought a farm in the Cotswolds, a place they could retire with their menagerie of sheep and goats, they didn’t expect to find three small cottages tucked away on the property, formerly an artist’s home and studio, but left abandoned and crumbling. Then they saw an opportunity. Judith renovated the three little houses completely, shoring up the structures, working with local builders to keep their original charm intact, and injecting some of her native Swiss style into the interiors.
Now, the three cottages—Whitehall, Winterspring, and the Baby Cottage, together called Cotswold Farm Hideaway—are available to rent on Airbnb and sleep six, four, and two, respectively, surrounded by the rolling hills of the Cotswolds. Judith runs the operation with her daughter, Kyra Kirwin. “It’s the essential antidote to city life,” Kyra tells us.
