As I walked up the street my instincts told me I was heading somewhere special. A decrepit old bicycle, now colourfully draped from seat to pedal in flowers, indicated that I had arrived at my destination.....

...... but I couldn’t see the actual house for plants. I had to look quite closely to find the path leading to the front door. Graeme welcomed me into her living room where comfy chairs and heaps of books and magazines encourage you to sit around the fireplace and read. But the magnetic heart of this homely 1920s cottage is the kitchen and with the best will in the world that’s where you’ll end up too: yellow, breezy, light-filled, and stuffed with family bits and bobs, portraits, paintings and collections of glassware. Large double doors are flung open onto a roof terrace, where you can sit and have breakfast in a shady spot and pick apples from the upper boughs of the apple tree that grows in the back garden below. Like the front garden, it’s crammed with mirrors and seats, tables and baskets, pots and plants and colour. Ferns, red acacia, azaleas, begonias, maple – anything that grows, including me, seems to like it here. Two of the bedrooms have private little balconies, and the Rosedale room and new Lighthouse suite have treetop views. All are filled with quirky antiques and commissioned stained glass. Unpretentious and wonderful.
