If you associate living in a cave with an antiquated existence spent out of the loop and in the dark, The Rockhouse Retreat in Worcestershire, England, will give a whole new meaning to the phrase.
Carved into sandstone, this 700-yr-previous deserted cave near the Wyre Forest is dubbed “Britain’s 1st luxury cave residence retreat.” Owner Angelo Mastropietro painstakingly restored the 700-square-foot dwelling in 2015, turning it into a romantic and exotic getaway.
The Rockhouse seamlessly blends nature’s serenity with modern design and technologies. Its interiors contain a stroll-in “rainforest” shower, a modern kitchen and heated floors in the shower and dressing space. There is also an outside terrace with grills and a fire pit.
The cave, tucked into the woods, features both naturally grown and professionally cultivated landscaping. This restoration project, which price Mastropietro $ 230,000, gives visitors the chance to relax amid nature yet not have to forfeit the indulgences of an upscale escape.
