I have a really good pal who’s wife is from ‘up north’.  This is fine, she used to be a lovely friendly, person with whom I  would spend a good couple of hours chatting and exchanging notes about the lovely cottages we’d stayed at for our respective holidays.  Our families always tried different parts of […]

When you buy your very first property, it is usually a flat or a terraced house.  Usually in need of a full refurbishment or at least a hefty chunck of cash for making it more habitable and comfortable.  It’s extremely rare that a couple will enter the fray by buying a fully fledged country cottage […]

Wherever you go in the country, there will be a wide selection of country cottages to look at, pore over, rent, buy – all of these things and more.   The only problem with this is that they are generally concentrated in hot spots and the price of them is necessarily very high, compared to normal […]

Heaven Resides In Remote Holiday Cott...

Cottage English

Just what we need is a tonic, a lift from the dismall and quite frankly debilitating grim weather of late.  I cannot understand how we end up with clouds, heavy rain, thick fog, snow flakes and bright sunshine all in one short day.  It ddrives me mad and I find myself getting morose and snappy […]

Cottages Are For Life, Not Just At Ch...

Cottage English3

When you get an invite out of the blue you just never know where it could land you.   This is very much the case whenever I take up offers of staying over Christmas or New Year with friends rather than going to family gatherings.   I have gained many chums in recent years;  some are single […]
