Cosy Nook

This is the former home of Britten and Pears’ long-term housekeeper Miss Hudson (she had been with the couple since the late 1940s). On her retirement in 1972, they built her a small house in the garden of The Red House which she christened ‘Cosy Nook’. Like Red Studio, it was designed by the architect Peter Collymore.
