Fulbourn Manor

Award winning refurbishment and conversion of outbuildings on the Fulbourn Manor Estate.


Beacon acted as planning and heritage consultants and secured planning permission and listed building Consent for the refurbishment of a group of buildings within the grounds of a Grade II listed historic Manor House and adjacent to the Grade II* listed church within the Fulbourn Conservation Area.

The scheme brought a range of listed buildings back into full use. The Coach House and Stables were sensitively restored and converted into two dwellings providing much-needed housing to rent in the village together with two commercial units.

The scheme was a particularly sensitive project given the historic importance of the site and involved lengthy negotiations with council officers and English Heritage following refusal of an earlier application.

The scheme was recognised by South Cambridgeshire District Council in its 2011 Conservation Awards rewarding best practice examples of building conservation. The contractor was George Collins and Sons of Kentford.


Permission was granted in January 2010 and the buildings occupied in late 2011.
