Author Katy Campbell and photographer Mark Nicholson 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. We are known for our positive, entrepreneurial culture, and for attracting some of the most innovative, dedicated and knowledgeable people in the business.

Design expert Katy Campbell and acclaimed photographer Mark Nicholson offer an insider’s look at the Cotswolds’ most charming and inspirational private homes. It was a romantic notion of emulating Laurie Lee's nostalgic world that sent footwear designer Penelope Chilvers and her husband Steve to look for a house in the country.

Now you can travel with Katie for a design-lovers tour of sixteen romantic Cotswold homes and their stylish, contemporary interiors. With the homes’ idyllic settings—and a foreword by the Duchess of Marlborough—this collection presents inspirational ideals of English country style certain to fascinate and delight. Penelope created a rhubarb fool effect on the wall by mixing two emulsion paints and then brushing over them with a large brush.

Luckily I’ve got the room with the best view and I sit at the desk and look out onto the garden and up the hill.

It is a beautiful visual feast, providing inspiration and insight into the quintessential Cotswold country home. The drawing room is painted in Edward Bulmer Lilac Pink, which turns into a warm pink in the evening light. Penelope’s expert eye for colour can be seen in the paint colours throughout the house, many of which she mixed herself, and she also painted all the rooms herself during the Covid lockdowns.

The collage on the wall features a leather notebook found in South Africa, which she mounted on an antique Japanese watercolour of a kimono design.
