Here are a few Before and After shots of Gloucester House Hastings. I bought this house end of June last year and started renovations mid July. It was a struggle in many ways but so far we’ve had a wonderful family Christmas here and half term with my grandchildren plus we have now just said goodbye to our first airbnb guests and I’m loving being here at every opportunity. I love this place 😍 it’s so good for the soul. Oh and we’ve now got a 200 yr old olive tree on the terrace too.

Bedroom two at Gloucester House is now finished ✅ except perhaps for a mirror and then the finished touches are complete. Just as well as the first booking came in today 🤩 😥 it’s gone from being the room we kept the door closed, to my favourite (almost). Such a beautiful and relaxing space to be in with the sandstone cliff face for a view and the hills and trees above full of birdsong.

Final touches to preparation of Gloucester House Hastings opening up to its first guests. I was very pleased with the antique French chair and love the combination of pastel blue and gold stripes with the heavy baroque - it shouldn’t work but does. What do you think?

It’s funny how just getting a coat rail correctly installed brings a level of joy 🤩. Beautiful vintage aluminium fabrication luggage rack from an old train has now been made useable by the addition of hand-made (invisible) attachments by my clever blacksmith builder Joe. I also love the fact that it perfectly matches the small oval gilt and black mirror in the hallway. Things are coming together very nicely at Gloucester House. Still waiting for our first booking- but enquiries have started. ✨

It’s the little things that make all the difference.
Beautiful hand-picked and arranged floral displays in Gloucester House. The morning light casts stunning shadows against the powder blue walls in the sitting room.

A grand old mahogany and brass inlay French bed with a view ... and what a view 😍So happy that my beautiful bed has finally arrived and has now been put together by my lovely builder so I can at last put the blow-up bed away (from the ridiculous to the sublime in comfort and style). Another milestone crossed in the development of Gloucester House. ✔️ big reveal soon.

Just a regular night in polishing my newly acquired antique rose gold door knob. Love the flecks of verdigris, due to the copper mixed with brass. I’m loving being in the Old Town Hastings - so many 💎 treasures here. This was rummaged and rescued from Robert’s Rummage in the High St (for less than a fiver!) and will be going on the front door at the new house. Also pleased with the spaceship/womb kitchen - it’s almost done. My style appears to be ancient mariner 🚢 meets future spaceship. 🛸

Beautiful Gloucester House is now being prepared for the big finale. It’s been a long eight weeks (it feels a longer) since renovation work started on my latest property project in Hastinga Old Town. This distressed old Victorian House by the sea is going to be spectacular- here’s a few progress shots.

Can you believe people throw out such treasures? Such beautiful things as these you can find in Hastings’ shops like ‘Robert’s Rummage’ which is just a minute walk away from beautiful Smugglers Cottage.

It was a revelation to try stracciatella ice cream as my Afogatta coffee partner at @di_polas traditional Italian ice cream parlour today.
Really recommend their delicious home-made ice cream and let all our guests know 😋 I’m also partial to their deliciously citrus grapefruit sorbet(unfortunately only very occasionally on the menu) or their voluptuous amaretto cherry. But take your pick they’re all yum.

On a freezing day we walked along the beach and were grateful to pick up a tasty warm morsel of crispy whitebait from the Rock-a-Nore kitchen restaurant- takeaway of course.

Here we are again in lockdown and my beautiful seaside cottage is laying empty so in an attempt to keep the bills paid and to offer help to someone who might need to isolate or shield away from people and the City I'm offering a unique opportunity to stay in a perfect seaside cottage with amazing sea views and safe fresh beach and hillside walks. If this is for you or you may know someone who needs to be isolated I'm reducing the monthly booking by a minimum 50% discount. There is a games and laundry room and beautiful bathroom - which you can see the sea from. A superbly comfortable bed with hotel high-grade bedding and towels. Digital TV with netflix etc and super fast internet (easy access). Feel free to get in touch or share to anyone who wants to be in perfect isolation.

#FeatureFriday Welcome to Feature Friday where we highlight a great property and their proactive owners! This week’s Featured Property is Smugglers Cottage - I was lucky enough to meet Adriana at The Short Stay Show in London last month and her gorgeous property is #Goals !! Smugglers Cottage is located in Hastings and the views are absolutely beautiful, Adriana has really maximised the properties features with her eye for interior design. She clearly puts so much into each and every guest but leaves a positive and lasting impression of our Industry as a whole, and great memories for the guest. This is reflected in their positive reviews. She’s also thinking how she can best utilise her home and is thinking a little differently - her home is offered as a filming location and as a location for photo shoots! What’s the future of Smugglers Cottage - Adriana, we’d love to hear your future plans! Keep up the fabulous work Adriana it was a pleasure to meet you in person and thank you for all you are doing for our Industry! Take a look at Adrianas Cottage on Facebook - pop in and like her page here http://ow.ly/Kjxk50r2SgT
