Swing off the village road to find the prettiest 1810 house, and vivacious Heather who has filled her home with fresh garden flowers, good art and a real eye for design and colour. You’ll be welcomed in the large sitting room with lots of plumped up sofas and a roaring fire on chilly days; in summer you’ll want tea in the fecund garden which swoops down to the river – a huge draw for birds, maybe even a kingfisher. Bedrooms have pretty wallpapers, fresh ginghams and chintzes, interesting books, impeccable bathrooms. Wake to freshly-squeezed orange juice, toothsome scrambled eggs, all the other gubbins and homemade marmalade. Lovely!
