Down windy lanes with tall grassy banks and the smell of the sea is a lovely Georgian country house with two walled gardens and barns at the back. You’ll fall for this place the moment you arrive, and its owners: Jo used to run an interiors business; Mike keeps the cattle and sheep that graze all around. Bedrooms are inviting; the double, overlooking the valley, has a cream French bed, a pretty quilted cover, a claw-foot bath and a little sitting room (adjoining) with TV. There’s an elegant drawing room with a fire too. Delicious breakfasts with home-laid eggs and homemade jams are brought to a snug room that catches the morning sun.
