Emily has thought of every comfort in this clever new build: vast windows allow light to pour in, underfloor heating keeps you warm, the lighting is intimate, the artwork very good (some from local artists) including an exquisite hand blown glass bubble light from Syria. Downstairs is open plan with plenty of space, squishy sofas, wooden parquet floors, and doors which open to the walled garden – all yours.
The kitchen is to the side of the living space and you’ll find local milk, tea, coffee, hot chocolate and local honey – fresh flowers too. A farmhouse oak table means cooking and eating are sociable affairs. Upstairs are two soothing bedrooms and bathrooms: Kate Forman or Susie Watson fabrics, feather and down duvets, Bramley soaps and lotions.
There are lovely walks along the river to Mells and Great Elm, dropping in on pubs selling local cider and ales.
