Their English Country Cottages We actually talked ourselves out of buying it as we said it was too small and over budget, but by the next day we were back and making an offer Katie Sant Katie and her husband Paul fell completely in love with this over budget, way too small but utterly gorgeous and sweetly named cottage. The couple actually talked themselves out of buying it as they decided…June 20, 2021
For me, cosmos is, the classic cut flower. They don’t take huge amounts of effort to grow and they always reward with lots of gorgeous flowers. As a result, cosmos is always on my shopping list for the Summer. It’s such a pretty flower, coming in a range of colours, and I challenge you not to find one that will work in your garden. The best part is it’s not too late to plant, so why not follow…June 18, 2021

The dahlias are in; I repeat the dahlias are in! I’m going to let you into a little secret; I’m a little behind on my cut flower garden.

In May 2020 our little thatched cottage was featured in Period Living Magazine. It was the culmination of 7 years of creating a family home with my “effortless rural style” – I have taken this as a positive comment on my interior design style rather than a reference to the lack of housekeeping, muddy wellies and occasional strange smell and have created a website to write about interiors, gardening, recipes…March 25, 2020
Hi, welcome to My English Country Cottage, a blog inspired by my successful Instagram page.
I have been writing about our family life in our 400 year old thatched cottage in the middle of nowhere (delivery drivers words) for just over a year and am now braving the world of 'blog'.
I have spent the past seven years making our house a home and have put my experiences into writing about cosy country interiors filled with florals, old books, roaring fires, oak beams and squashy sofas.
