The draw of a cottage

A dusting of snow today is always exciting. Whilst short-lived, it nonetheless ignites a flame that has never gone out since I saw my first snowfall as a child. There is simply, something magical about plumes of white stuff falling, with the promise of the fun that may be had, be it on a sledge building a snowman or being beaten in a snowball match by your children! The other lovely thing about playing out in the snow and getting thoroughly cold, is the retreat to a fireside, for a cup or bowl of something warm to revive you and let you also enjoy your property at this time of year. Country houses look particularly handsome draped in snow. But cottages take on a special appeal in the winter. Their inviting fireplaces and thick walls comfort you against the elements. Curling up in a favorite chair or a fireside supper of something sustaining are just some of the joys of living in a period property on the best and worst winter days. Salisbury is very much a rural city and its ancient streets have some of the loveliest cottages. These too provide a welcome oasis away from the winter. The city has wonderful walks and parks, with welcoming inns and hostelries to revive you. But the sight of that magnificent spire, be it in the snow or sun, lifts the spirits and reminds us that in the pursuit of excellence, that anything is possible. I love country houses but that other great British architectural gem of the cottage is hard to beat when you can no longer feel your toes and home beckons. Winkworth Salisbury
