As you drive up the long road to Daylesford Farm you see a striking building that combines honey hued stone and an airy expanse of glass, framed with Farrow and Ball green. There is a sense of lightness about the place and a serenity that envelops the whole estate. Based in the Cotswolds, it’s known [...]
Autumn is that time of year when it starts to get a bit chilly, the air is crisp, the days are starting to get shorter and you want to sit inside with a nice cup of tea. These are some of the books that I have read during the last few months, which transport you [...]
I decided to devote an entire post to this Foundation, as it’s simply not enough to have just one paragraph about it in my post on Porquerolles.
