I always try and help with pool cleaning, it’s quite therapeutic really, pushing the ‘hoover’ over the bottom and sides of the pool, ever so slowly to suck up all the leaves and bits and bobs that make their way into the pool.

Watching the ripples in the water, so mesmerizing.

Such a lovely sunny, bright day. Time for a swim before our guests arrive, so cooling and relaxing after a very busy morning doing the changeover for The Nest.

I like to have everything spick and span and looking lovely and welcoming for our guests, especially if they have had a long journey to get to us.

I love to dry the bed linen outside on a sunny day, there’s nothing like the smell of freshly laundered and naturally dried linen, and it is 100% linen. It just must be natural fabrics, no ironing, lazy linen for that look and feel. Gorgeous pale dove grey linen goes so well with the décor of the bedroom.

We have had such wonderful reviews from our guests, this is one of them;

“I read a review comparing this cottage to Soho House in regards to the décor etc. It’s far better than that. Every little detail felt luxury (special shout out for the shampoo/soaps etc!) Julie and Damian were great hosts, and on hand with speedy replies to any questions we had.

My wife and I enjoyed a super private, super peaceful 2 nights by the pool, with incredible views and no noise at all-and just 50 minutes from Central London! We enjoyed a beautiful walk through Woodlands and fields into the town where there were plenty of country pubs/shops for supplies. 10/10 will book again.”

Just makes it all worth it, we love sharing what we love, with our guests.
