Client: National Trust

The Challenge

Outscape will undertake an Access and Recreation Study for the grounds at Glenmona House, Cushendun, County Antrim. 

The Role

Described as a village renowned for its distinctive architecture and unspoilt charm, most of Cushendun and the parkland around Glenmona House has been cared for by National Trust since 1954. Cushendun Village was designated as a Conservation area in 1980 as a result of its unique architecture and picturesque coastal setting in the heart of the Antrim Coast and Glens area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. 

An Access and Recreation Study will provide recommendations for:  

  1. The improvement of recreational access to the grounds of Glenmona House for use by the local community.
  2. The improvement of recreational access for external visitors to the grounds of Glenmona House in a sustainable manner 
  3. The provision of a cohesive experience, to consider: 
  • External linkages to residential areas  
  • External linkages to the wider visitor experience within Cushendun  
  • Existing heritage and other built features, for example allotments, outdoor gym, car parking, public toilets, and play park
