I was just sorting out some old issues of Aga Living magazine and came across an interesting article in issue 5 from 2008.
A Corner Of Edenis a delightful Bed and Breakfast located in the Eden Valley in Kirby Steven, Cumbria. The beautiful countryside location is an ideal spot for a peaceful, relaxing stay.
Owners Debbie and Richard worked every hard to get the Grade II listed Georgian farmhouse-which had been empty for 4 years- up to a standard they were happy with, whilst also working full-time during the day. The renovation and restoration was a painstaking and time consuming process, with very pleasing end results.
Original features and quality furnishings are what make this B&B special.
Colours have been kept simple, warm and inviting and the luxury fabrics ooze opulence. I love the high ceilings and open fires.
Much of the restoration was carried out by Richard himself. It seems he is quite the handyman- he even made this beautiful oak dining table, above!

Travelling is one of life’s pleasures and I love to experience other cultures. Whilst there are obvious benefits to staying in a large corporate hotel, I’d much prefer to find a quirky place to stay which represents that country’s way of life. Uxua Casa in Brazil oozes Brazilian style and it looks so inviting!
Located in the quaint fishing village of Trancoso, the nine 1-3 bedroom houses were built and decorated in collaboration with local artisans using traditional building methods and recycled materials.
Uxua is pronounced oo-shoo-ahh, meaning ‘marvelous’.
