Homes Away From Home: The Talbot Inn, Mells


A couple of weekend ago we headed down to Somerset, to one of our favourite villages in the world - where we got married in November 2012, the beautiful Mells. We booked to stay at The Talbot Inn, which is right next to the church in the middle of the gorgeous village - there were four of us plus one little one and we had the most amazing weekend! 

The weather was perfect - we took advantage and walked across to Babington House for a swim and lunch - even though it was early March we even managed a bit of sunbathing on the comfiest loungers in the world - sitting there sipping ginger and honey tea whilst watching the clouds pass by overhead will be one of my most lasting memories of the weekend. It was utter bliss! 

After a delicious lunch we walked back across the fields to The Talbot, where I soaked in a bath full of bubbles before heading down to supper. The food at the pub is fantastic and at weekends there is the added bonus of The Grill restaurant, which they run in one of the outbuildings. The boys shared an amazing meat platter while I enjoyed some of the nicest pulled pork I've ever tasted. 

I can't recommend this place enough. We were planning to try and pop back again for another weekend in a few months time, but it seems weekends are almost all fully booked for the rest of the year, so you have to book early!

Your Home: Blue & White Ceramics from Sophie Conran


I hope you all had a gorgeous weekend? We went to Mells in Somerset, which is one of our favourite places partly because it's the village where P and I got married and partly because it is just a very special place. 

I will share some gorgeous photos of our trip later in the week, but for now wanted to show you this beautiful new collection of blue and white ceramics from Sophie Conran. I am such a fan (if not a little obsessed by) blue and white crockery and if I had my way would have at least seven sets so I could use a different one for each day of the week! Sadly our kitchen doesn't have enough storage to indulge such a fantasy, so for now I will just have to imagine this new set on my table!

The pieces from the collection are all lovely and I think that small bowls below of the tea cups and saucers would make a gorgeous present for Mother's Day.

What is your interiors obsession? The one thing that you just couldn't live without and would collect if space and money allowed?

Have a great Monday and see you later in the week!

Homes Away From Home: Paradise Road Tintangel, Colombo

Sri Lanka is one of the most beautiful countries I have ever visited - I have been a number of times and the scenery, food and gorgeous people that live there, never fail to impress me. The first time I visited was just after the Tsunami and I have been about five or six times over the years since and am so pleased to see that now the country is at peace again, tourism is really taking off and after years of unrest things are slowly returning to normal on this magical island. 

The first hotel I want to share with you is a must visit in the capital of Colombo. It's a haven away from the bustling streets - the monochrome elegance hits you as you drive up to the entrance and this theme is continued throughout the public areas of the hotel. Our room (we were upgraded to a beautiful suite) was a palette of soft pastels; a stunning serene space to unwind after a day exploring the sites. I'm not sure I need to say any more - these beautiful pictures by my talented husband really do speak for themselves!

We booked through Mr & Mrs Smith, which as always was a pleasure, and there was a lovely welcome gift waiting for us in the room.

I've got lots more gorgeous Sri Lankan properties to share with you in coming weeks, it really is such a special place, if you haven't been I would definitely move it to the top of your bucket list!
