And when it comes to the one of the places she calls home – a 350-acre sustainable organic farm in the West Country – it will come as no surprise that it reflects the author and speaker’s love of all things nature.

    She has a fabulous way with florals

    Nothing pretties up a plain wooden dining table quite like a few vases of fresh flowers. The staggered height of the trio of vases is a nice touch, and the centre display seems to perfectly match the floral design of the curtains in the background.

    She’s a fan of creative canopies

    Shade and style – this covered floral walkway ticks both of these boxes. We can’t think of a more serene way to take a walk up to this rustic country home.

    She knows how to make an entrance

    A blue-green front door with tall potted topiary on either side is a classic winning combination when it comes to a country-style entranceway. We’re also fans of the contrast between the slatted door on the bottom half and the boxed window on the top half.

    She’s a fan of upcycling

    We can’t get enough of this unique garden bench made up of a log and some disused dining table backs. Definitely something that will leave guests impressed.

    She’s made the kitchen the real heart of her home

    Hanging herbs using sturdy string from what looks like meat hooks is a genius idea. A metal rail below is also the perfect place for Liz’s collection of pots and pans.

    Herbs drying over the Aga – have just posted an IG video on how to make your own mixed herbs – so simple, tasty, sustainable and cheap! The ones I have picked here are thyme, oregano, parsley, marjoram and sage (plus a handful of mint leaves to dry for tea – so much tastier and less expensive than buying mint tea bags…). All you need do hang the herbs to air-dry somewhere warm (a sunny windowsill is perfect), crush or snip with kitchen scissors and mix to your taste. I pretty much do equal quantities of each (a tad less sage perhaps) and you can throw in a handful of chilli seeds for extra kick if you fancy! 🌱🍃🌶 LX . . . . . #lizearle #herbs #driedherbs #herbalist #folklore #botanical #naturalhealth #naturalbeauty #farmhousekitchen #gettheglow #fitfam #sw #fabat40 #fabat50 #wellbeingwarrior #wellbeingwisdom #hrt #menopause #perimenopause #livewell #aga #agalove #lovemyaga

    Looking at this charming kitchen from another vantage point we can spot the requisite Aga in a lovely shade of cream and as well as a standout stone kitchen mantle.

    She knows just what it takes to create a relaxing environ

    Period-style panelling on the bathroom wall helps to draw walls in and create a cosy ambience. Add in a healthy smattering of lit pillar candles and some heritage chrome bath taps and you’ve got the perfect ingredients for a style-conscious soak.

    She makes the fireplace her focal point

    What could be more calm-inducing than spending an evening in front of a roaring fire – and what looks like an original one at that – complete with an ornate metal grate? The burnt orange ottoman doubles up as the perfect place to put your feet up.
