retreat at goddards. / sfgirlbybay
Goddards was built by architect Edwin Lutyens and has a garden laid out by his friend and collaborator, Gertrude Jekyll. Goddards, with its bowling alley, is approached by deeply sunken lanes that are almost tunnels through the wooded landscape.
an english country winter | cookery + knitting + photography — local milk retreats
This retreat will embrace winter in the English countryside, frost kissed mornings and all. This creative slow living retreat in Surrey, England will celebrate all things cozy: tea time, rustic roasts, fires in the hearth, knitting, baking, ales & ciders at the pub, and, of course, the photography of it all. We'll be staying in a stately country home, the Landmark Trust's Goddard House, built in the early 1900's, complete with a wood burning fire place & an old skittle (bowling!) alley. Designed in the traditional Surrey style, it epitomizes the area, and will be the perfect back drop for days spent knitting, photographing, and building relationships both in the kitchen & around the table.
