Manor Farm near Chipping Norton in Oxfordshire receives the Highly Commended award at the Natural Stone Awards 2008 in the category New Build (load bearing stone)

The project involved the regeneration of the Cotswold farming estate, designed by Robert Adam. The masterplan for the site aimed to prevent further decline of a series of listed houses. Central to the proposal was the refurbishment of the principal property and the creation of a new extension and link building.

The judges' comments were: "With this building, the careful adherence to local materials, coupled with traditional building techniques, has resulted in a building that continues the strong tradition of stone Oxfordshire country houses. Already it is difficult to date."
