Begin a quiet day to yourself in this peaceful bathroom’s walk-in shower. Throughout this charming cottage, the best in modern appliances sit side by side with traditional furnishings that honour a history spanning several centuries. Here, pristine white, countertop basins rest on sleek stone shelves, surrounded by country-style wooden panels. William Morris’s Brer Rabbit wallpaper, in a calming shade of Wedgewood blue, lines the walls and brings the garden indoors with its orderly pattern of leaves, birds and rabbits. Downstairs, a relaxing morning of coffee, croissants and the papers awaits you. Take a seat in the sun room on a velvet sofa in an irresistible shade of British racing green. Welcoming cushions, decorated with flowers and ferns, and a rustic wood table continue to draw in the subtle beauty of the scenic countryside that surrounds the house. As you sip your steaming hot drink, gaze out onto the garden’s magnificent mature trees and undulating lawn, beyond which lie the stunning mountainscapes of the Lake District. Only the soothing sounds of birdsong and the wind moving through branches and leaves can be heard from inside this tranquil room. Who minds logging on, when you have this view to rest your eyes on between online meetings and emails? Concentrate in the comfort of a powder-blue, studded velvet chair at a sturdy wooden desk in this handsome office, as your feet rest on a warming kilim rug in rich tones of burgundy and berry. This is a contemplative space that invites the mind to focus, whether it’s on work, a creative pursuit or perhaps an entirely new venture. As the afternoon fades into evening, prepare a hot bath for yourself. Candlelight, bubbles and a book to peruse all make a soak in the tub one of the best ways to unwind and there’s no better place to do so than in this cosy bathroom as a midwinter evening draws in around you. Then retreat into the softest of armchairs in a restful corner of the lounge. Here, it’s time to read your novel for as long as you wish, beneath the branches of an olive tree while savouring the sweet vanilla and cinnamon of an eggnog - afterall, it is Christmas.
