The weather is seriously vile here today; I’m not convinced I’ve even seen daylight as it’s been so rainy and grey. In an ideal world I would be cosying up somewhere like Deutzia Cottage in Dorset for a weekend of leisurely mornings, bracing walks, pub lunches and roaring fires.
From the weathered stone of the exterior, to the rustic beams inside, this place has character by the bucketload and is most definitely on my wishlist of places to visit at some point.
The interiors are done in a quintessentially English country style; warm earthy colours and natural materials are used downstairs to create a welcoming, homely feel, whilst toiles and floral fabrics in the bedrooms add a touch of romance.
The matching wallpaper and fabrics in the bedrooms are perhaps more than most people (including myself) would contemplate in their own homes, but it’s interesting what appeals when viewed in the setting of a hotel or holiday cottage. The beauty of escapism, I guess.
Where do you long to escape to at this time of year? Do you want embrace the season with somewhere cosy, or seek out the sunshine somewhere hot?
