As winter starts to settle in here in the UK I’m wondering why I didn’t get round to booking that winter break. Well, ok, so I’ve had other things on my mind like keeping up the momentum on a quarterly magazine and app (Heart Home of course), establishing myself as a full-time freelancer (it’s going ok…fingers crossed) and moving house (still at the contracts stage but moving forwards slowly). So really holidays have been way down the agenda. Which is a shame because we all need holidays.
And I couldn’t think of a nicer location than Orchards Keepers which is a beautiful four bedroom home and separate Workers Cottage situated an hour outside of Melbourne. It was originally three separate cottages dating back to the 1890′s & 1950′s and has been lovingly restored to now provide accommodation for ten people surrounded by neighboring vineyards and orchards.
I love the restful colours, the use of simple materials and the complete absence of clutter. And yet is still looks welcoming and warm and absolutely the perfect place to recharge the batteries.
And it’s available to rent!
