Looking for interiors inspiration? Nothing does the job better than a nose around someone else's house

A complete guilty pleasure of ours is looking around real homes, such as that of Winter Cottage. Come with us behind the scenes.

This thatched cottage is a period family home occupying a delightful position within the village of West Tytherley. The property has undergone significant transformations, resulting in a well-present and stylish country home.

The impressive four bedroom house is on the market with agents Savills, with an asking price of £1,575,000.

‘This is quite possibly the most complete package in the market at this level, it is truly special’ exclaims Giles Muddle, Property agent. ‘If you want the mix of character yet high levels of presentation then look no further. The immaculate grounds and fine views area also worthy to note.’

The kitchen is a country dwellers dream. Every detail, from the classic AGA to the generous double butler sink to the earthy shade of grey green on the walls and the rustic wooden worktop.

The elegant glass pendant light and modern dining set adds a contemporary touch. Not two looks most would think to mix, but doesn't it work well.

A rich blue creates a sense of ambience perfect for this snug area. The aged leather armchairs, stag emblem on the fireplace and traditional gold gilded frames all add to the country charm in this living space.

The bedrooms, despite being housed under the heavy thatched roof, feel light and airy. Helped by a brightening white colour scheme.

The two original windows help to invite plenty of natural light in.
