Wonderful Words From Abroad

We love finding out feedback about what people have to say about staying at our cottages, and it also means so much when we find that a guest or admirer has featured us in their blog.

We’ve recently had two really special additions:   Ghadah Alkandari –  three days in nayland | Cobblers Cottage “Back at the cottage I soothe my stomach with tea and light the fire. I immediately fall asleep in front of it, right there on the floor, no introductions.” The well respected artist and talented writer, Ghadah, is a regular to the Grove Cottages, travelling all the way from Kuwait and visiting a different cottage on each occasion.

Her fourth and most recent experience was with Cobblers Cottage – you can read all about her adventure and see the lovely photos taken throughout her stay on Ghadah’s blog – prettygreenbullet.com

Find out more about Ghada on her website: www.ghadahalkandari.com

Nancy Reinke – Living Large in Small Spaces – Cissy’s Cottage Nancy is a US based blogger who wrote a lovely piece on Cissy’s Cottage in her ‘Living Large in Small Spaces’ series.

She states that her writing “reflects my love for all things cottage: architecture, gardens, décor, food, hospitality and more“, so we are obviously delighted for her to write this feature on Cissy’s and look forward to reading more about her passion on our boutique selection in the future.

You can read Nancy’s  blog on ajoyfulcottage.com Below is a beautiful portrait that Ghadah painted on one of her first visits; to Rose Cottage.
