Blue Willow is straight out of a storybook, the sort of place you might expect to run into Hobbits or Alice (of Wonderland fame) or Mrs Tiggy-Winkle. Everything about it is, well, sweet.....

.... The garden is divine, like a mini Garden of Eden where romantic nooks are hidden amid the profusion of plants. A white hydrangea clusters over the door and blue-edged windows peer out from beneath leafy mantles. Plants definitely have the upper hand, and the cottage seems to do gentle battle with a sea of rambling flora. There’s probably some fauna in there too. Inside, the house is equally adorable. Maxine’s devotion to British House and Garden is patent and you’ll have to remind yourself you’re in Canada, not a cosy Suffolk cottage. John, a dashing ex-NATO fighter pilot, dons his apron and serves an exotic breakfast in the snug beamed sitting room while Arlene chatters away and generally spoils you. An array of silver and of course the Blue Willow china add to the occasion. My room was brimming with character and the dinky turquoise claw-foot tub persuaded me to indulge in a second bath of the day. Fresh flowers are always in abundance. For those after a little more seclusion, there is the garden cottage.
