room: The liv­ing room is our favourite. It has a Ge­or­gian, sym­met­ri­cal feel to it, so un­usual for a cot­tage. We like the fire in win­ter and in sum­mer all the win­dows open on to the gar­den.

Favourite item:

The Vic­to­rian style ra­di­a­tors as we feel they are works of art in them­selves.

Favourite in­te­ri­ors shop:

Birdie Fortes­cue’s in­te­rior shop in Burn­ham.

Favourite part of the county:

A long walk on Bran­caster Beach or maybe Thorn­ham Marshes.

Favourite day out:

Here! Its re­ally charm­ing, with un­spoiled coun­try­side and quite of­ten we see deer, hares and a va­ri­ety of birds of prey. What I like is the peace away from the hustle of the coast, although we are only 20 min­utes from the sea.

Favourite waste of time:

Look­ing for ideas in In­te­rior de­sign mag­a­zines.

Favourite walk:

Walk­ing our dog Harry, up the quiet lane, that leads to the church, then onto Rayn­ham vil­lage and around back home.

Favourite pub:

A trip we like is lunch at The Duck at Stan­hoe.
