Their English Country Cottages I fell in love with the quaint of it Lisa, her husband and their Cocker Spaniel Ruby moved into this dreamy cottage 20 years ago (so that’s why these roses are so stunning). They were searching for the holy grail of a character cottage in a village location so when the estate agents telephoned to say they had a new cottage just come onto the market,…February 14, 2021
There’s nothing quite like fresh flowers in the home. In fact, they are probably my favourite ‘accessory’. It is just unfortunate they don’t last forever. However, there are a few things you can do that will help maximise the life of your blooms and, with Valentine’s day just around the corner, I thought it was good timing to share my tips – just in case those hints have worked and you are on the receiving end of getting some flowers over…February 11, 2021

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.
