Wake up to sunlight streaming in through sash windows, take the dog for a short stroll to the quayside to pick up a freshly baked loaf then head back to your terraced garden for an breakfast looking out over the estuary. If only every day could start the Sunnyhill way.

Whether it's Sunday lunch scents drifting from the kitchen or the sensation of cool kitchen tiles after the heat of the summer sun, Coote Cottage captures that holiday feeling whatever the season.
