first words from the editor

March is a time of indoors and out… Sunshine might tempt us to get gardening or take a bracing walk, but cutting winds and sudden showers can soon drive us back inside, where there is much-needed spring cleaning to be done. No matter – there’s pleasure to be had in both. On our cover this month, we say ‘Bring new life to your kitchen’. This space around which daily life revolves is the most important room in the home: for ideas on how to create your ideal style and atmosphere, turn to page 46. We follow this with ‘Stay in a boathouse’ (page 20) and suggest where to find these quirky buildings, but anywhere you book for a country stay will bring joy as you escape the everyday and watch spring…

a month in the country

TAKE PART IN WALK ALL OVER CANCER The simple act of putting one foot in front of the other can work wonders for the mind, body and soul. Regular walking helps reduce stress, increase energy levels and improve sleep – and throughout the month of March, Cancer Research UK is encouraging us to Walk All Over Cancer, by taking 10,000 steps each day (the equivalent to around five miles) in the name of charity. Whether you stroll to work, take the family for a countryside ramble or meet friends for a weeknight wander, it’s a wonderful way to step into spring, discover new places and raise money for a worthy cause.

a simple make… vintage-style case

1 Find vintage embroidered cloths at flea markets and antiques markets. Placemats make the perfect choice, because of their rectangular shape.2 Measure one long edge and roughly divide the measurement by five.3 With the wrong side facing, fold up the bottom long edge two-fifths and pin in place. This will form the purse section. The top remaining part of the cloth will become the flap.4 Machine stitch along the two edges of doubled cloth, where it is pinned.5 Fold over the top edge and press flat with an iron.6 Sew a snap-fastener in place – one piece to the top flap (in the centre, just above the edge of the cloth) and the other to the front of the pouch, so they are in line when pressed closed.7 Sew a…

find your dream country home

Our property of the month BALHOMIE, CARGILL, PERTHSHIRE £950,000 THERE’S SOMETHING FAIRY TALE-ESQUE ABOUT THIS GRAND TURRETED ABODE IN THE HEART OF PERTHSHIRE – and, indeed, the story of its creation is a rather romantic one. Built in 1901, it’s said the location was chosen during a picnic: when Lady Emma Moon admired the views stretching across the River Tay, her husband, Lord Ernest, vowed to build a house on the exact spot. Now this Scots Baronial ‘C’-Listed property sits amid its own orchard, former kitchen garden, original glasshouses and stables. Inside, in addition to five bedrooms, is a galleried landing centred around an open fire, where you can thaw out after a chilly morning spent on the slopes of Glenshee snowsports centre, less than one hour away. For details of more…
