The NGS gardens are dreamy. There are several acres to explore and admire, including immaculate clipped box and topiary, brick, shingle and grass paths, mature trees and swathes of foxgloves; wander down to the benches in the far reaches and listen to the birdsong. Tables and chairs are set out in the summer.
There are two bedrooms in both the guest wing in the main house and the separate cottage. All is beautifully decorated; beds are topped with the best linen; cushions match sumptuous curtains. The cottage has a kitchenette and conservatory; browse the many books by the wood-burner in the sitting room. The guest wing has an enormous living room with a trio of sofas and a library.
If Georgina and Iain are away a nutritionist/cookery writer prepares breakfast: perhaps a healthy smoothie of the day, homemade granola, compote and sourdough, local cheese and a home-cooked special as well as a traditional English.
