It’s true that our home should be our sanctuaries, a place to retreat from the world when it all gets too much to handle. From that cosy reading corner where you can escape into a good book to the bathroom where you can soak and soothe away worries to a beautiful garden that gives you a slice of nature, our home environments have the power to really influence our mood. And there’s nowhere that concept is more acute than in our bedrooms. The bedroom is quite literally the inner sanctum – the space where we recharge our batteries, both literally and metaphorically, reconnect with our partner and achieve our most relaxed state – sleep.

The garden for many country homes is quite large and perhaps is one of the reasons why the price tag is so high on average. Large gardens look great when they are mown and the lawn is well kept, but over time even this can get a bit boring. A flat space with nothing much happening doesn’t quite seem all that attractive when you compare it to the options you have. So what are those options that you are missing?
