the mood of the moment: stretching out the summer

I’m still enjoying fresh early-mornings on the patio with a coffee and the cat (we listen to the birdsong together) and evenings sipping rosé while watching the bats swoop. I intend to keep my shoes open-toed until it’s too frosty to bear, squeezing out the last drops of slow summer living until I’m ready to embrace the change of seasons and the sudden slide into (whisper it!) Christmas. On that note, those of you who love to plan ahead might like to know that the fourth Country Homes & Interiors Christmas fair will be taking place at Stonor Park, Oxfordshire, from 21-24 November. Tickets are on sale soon – look out for info in the October issue. Have you found us on Instagram, yet? Follow @countryhomesmag to get a sneak peek at beautiful…

Having several hundred years of history to contend with always makes a house renovation more complicated. For Stephanie and Steven Thorne’s 17th-century farmhouse, its epic age meant a challenging journey as the couple transformed the dated interior into a gracefully refined modern country home, learning plenty about its past along the way. The farmhouse, set romantically amid acres of Dorset countryside, was never going to be a project for the faint hearted, but Steve had learnt from the experience of two previous renovations. ‘I discovered it by chance while browsing a property website, but because I’d promised Steph that our existing home would be the last I’d renovate, I went to see it on my own first,’ says Steve. It was the height of summer and he was beguiled by the…

living the dream

Have you made any unusual finds? We found an entire tree trunk supporting a wall in the kitchen! Have you seen photos of the house in the past? Our neighbour was born here and she has shared some of her family photos with us. We also have one of the house after the 1947 roof fire. Does the house have any local connections? It has connections with Canford Manor (now Canford School) in Wimborne, the former home of Lord and Lady Wimborne, as well as the hamlet of Knighton, which is thought to have been a medieval deer park during the reign of King Edward III.…
