Last week I had a real treat!
On Friday morning I got ready and set off. The French Country House is only 10 minutes from where I live so I didn't have far to go at all. Before I knew it I was there pulling into the driveway with this magnificent home right in front of me.
Walking up to the huge double front doors my senses were already overloaded with all of the incredible detail of the property. A collection of beautiful planters either side of the door, exquisite tiles on the front entrance, intricate wrought iron, gorgeous light fixtures and a chalk board to welcome me made for a breathtaking start. Using the cast iron door knocker, I knocked twice and was greeted by Kay, the Manager.
We chatted in the entrance briefly before starting my own private tour of this stunning accommodation and wedding venue.
As we wandered from room to room my eyes were offered a new feast of exquisite artefacts from all over the world that accentuated each space. From the crisp white bed linen, to beautifully painted furniture, gorgeous robes hanging in the bathrooms and the most stunning views, everything was perfect.
With three guest rooms, each with it's own enormous bathroom, every detail is taken care of. Each room is furnished with elegant pieces that enhance the stunning design.

Really, I could go on and on showing you more and more photographs and talking about The French Country House. But I'll stop here, and if you'd like to see more, head on over to my Facebook page or to my Instagram account where I will be continuing to share more images from my visit.

Thank you Kay, The French Country House really is a testament not only to the inspiration and creativity of the owners, but also to your day-to-day management of the property and its guests. Thank you so, so much.
