The relaxed and humorous owners infuse their Palladian villa with old-style charm and bold colours, intellectual curiosity and good food

Hannah and Paddy took over Roundwood House from Hannah's parents; they are thoughtful, lovely people, as relaxed as the dogs that doze outside, and have endless time for visitors. Which doesn't mean they neglect the cooking: Roundwood's reputation for good food and wine is reliable and deserved. That supreme doll's house Palladian façade, built by Quakers in 1680, hides a charming, unpretentious family house which the Kennans have loved and lived in for 25 years. There are griddle scones for breakfast and books abound... botanical, philosophical, musical (Rosemary plays the harp). Elegance salutes you in the building's fabric, old family portraits in the hall, old oils in the drawing room – so what matter a few cracks or some worn upholstery? The beautiful rooms in the main house are big, bright and leap with colour, the four in the scented herb-garden courtyard, one a four-poster, are newly dressed in rush matting and all-white bedcovers. Dine with your amusing, well-informed hosts by the fire in the cosy dining room. You won't regret or forget a single human moment.
