Property expert Katy Campbell and acclaimed photographer Mark Nicholson offer an insider’s look at the Cotswolds’ most charming and inspirational private homes.
Foreword by the Duchess of Marlborough
At Home in the Cotswolds is a celebration of beautiful Cotswold houses and their interiors. Katy and Mark take us on a tour of the villages and rolling hills of the Cotswolds as they uncover some of the most charming and inspirational homes in the region: a chocolate box cottage, an exquisite old rectory, a Georgian farmhouse, a quintessential manor house, an historic stately home, and more. Home to artists, writers, rock stars, and royalty—and featured in popular TV shows and films such as Bridget Jones’s Diary, Downton Abbey, and Pride and Prejudice—the cottages and grand houses of the Cotswolds have captured the imagination of people around the world.
The featured homes, along with their adjacent gardens, were chosen not only for their architectural beauty but for their stunning interiors, which range in style from classical English country retreat to chic contemporary dwelling. Each house, and the interior design of its rooms, reflects the charm and character of its owners—and comes with its own unique and intriguing story. With the homes’ idyllic settings, this collection presents inspirational ideals of English country style certain to fascinate and delight.
