Find pretty bedrooms and delightful, unfussy Sue. Sit in the sun on the herb-scented terrace, admire the roses and colourful scented borders

Dating from 1785, three old cottages are now a long, low, rose-covered house of gentle rubble stone with a pantile roof, a pretty painted gate edged with lolling hollyhocks and a super garden. Well-proportioned rooms have good English furniture and interesting paintings. Bedrooms are softly coloured with a pretty mix of checks, stripes and plain white cotton. Sue is delightful and looks after you without fuss; breakfast will set you up for the day. When she arrived in 1999 she kept only a few shrubs and mature trees; the rest she bulldozed. Now French windows and doors lead directly onto the generous flagged terrace with its young box-edged parterre filled with herbs. Clumps of lavender, rosemary and sage give a Mediterranean feel and scent the house but it is also a lovely place to sit and admire the rest – in particular, the wide bed of summer-flowering perennials: sweet-scented white phlox, elegant perovskia with its lavender blue spikes and grey foliage, and dramatic acanthus. This is a charming, well planted garden with good lawns and unexpected surprises that invite inspection.
