A little piece of history in Guildford
This beautiful period cottage sits in Dunsfold and it’s enchanting throughout – from the moment you set eyes on the welcoming wooden gate and Tudor-style exterior to your first glimpse at what awaits inside.
The surrounding areas are calm and rural while the home itself is a three-bedroom property perfectly suited to a growing family. But it’s the charming rustic kitchen that really sells this place and sets it apart from the rest.
Feeling cool by the pond in Rosemary Lane
You only have to catch a quick glimpse of the exterior of this lovely property from across the pond and the trees surrounding it to fall more than a little bit in love with the place, and things only get better once you head inside.
This Alford property features five bedrooms and two bathrooms but it’s the way it’s has been lovingly decorated with all the rustic countryside charm you’d expect that really sets it on a different standard.
Up on the hill in High Gale House
This gorgeous cottage up in Cumbria sits on an aspect with direct access and views over the Northern Fells and enjoys vistas that really do need to be seen to be believed.

Heading over to ‘Bumble Cottage’…
