Hex Cottage at Wilderness Reserve

I could not resist sharing just one more property available at Wilderness Reserve....because look how cute this cottage is!!! What a perfect setting for a little romantic honeymoon getaway. A dreamy thatched former forester's cottage for two, electricity-free, candlelit and set in woods overlooking its own meadow. In Hex Cottage, built in the Regency 'cottage orné' (or decorated cottage) style, an Esse wood-burning range in the kitchen provides all the hot water and heating, though there are open fires in the sitting room and bedroom. In the kitchen, think original bread ovens, brick floors and butler sinks. Swing open the door to discover your own herb garden, store for the all-important logs and wilderness beyond. In the bedroom, candles and a fairy-tale canopy above the king-size Hypnos bed set the scene.

The Farmhouse at Wilderness Reserve

Wilderness Reserve consists of 5,000 acres of gorgeous landscape in Suffolk, England containing a unique collection of restored manors, cottages, a farmhouse - all available to book for what would be a very unique stay. I am completely smitten with the Farmhouse. Formerly the estate's home farm and without doubt its oldest property, the Farmhouse sits in the heart of the hamlet within the estate's Arcadian pleasure grounds. Downstairs, the central triple-height hall opens up to a beamed sitting room with comfy sofas, inglenook fireplace and fluffy throws as well as the large kitchen & dining room. Two of the six en suite bedrooms are the on the ground floor and the rest are discovered up an oak staircase with its bridge across the hall. Everything here is SO pretty! That pink!!!! (Thanks for the link Edward!)

Dangar dalliance

Time to escape the everyday. Time for a virtual getaway. Perched on the slopes Dangar Island (in the Hawkesbury River just north of Sydney) is a mid century dream, a designer home in the Australian bush. Can you smell the eucalyptus and hear the continuous thrum of cicadas in the trees or are you all agog at the iconic furniture pieces sprinkled about the stylish interiors? I think we should stop imagining and go there in real life. The Dangar Island House, with interiors by Karen McCartney (design author and founding editor of Inside Out) is available for holiday rental. Start packing your bags.

Mid Century Yellow

You know I'm nosey. I like to stalk people's homes online. I like to look in every nook and cranny. The only thing better would be to actually stay in other people's homes and really look in every nook and cranny. I'm smitten by this Chelsea apartment with its fabulous collection of mid century pieces and a yellow kitchen that I never knew I wanted to replicate at my place. It would make the perfect base for any London foray because guess what? It's a vacation rental available through The Plum Guide. You can find out more here

Backwater

After surviving a record breaking heatwave in my part of the world I find myself dreaming of getaways that involve water, lots of water. Backwater "sits on a small promontory in a secluded lagoon in the Norfolk Broads and offers a contemporary counterpoint to more traditionally designed neighbouring houses, while respecting the peaceful natural setting." Off the grid and may I say off the scale style-wise. I just want to lie staring at the ripples in the water as gentle breezes waft over me ... and I can because Backwater, designed by London-based Platform 5 Architects, is a holiday let. Bliss.
