I have always loved British beaches, maybe because I grew up in Yorkshire in the beautiful countryside and then worked in London for many years, so the beach has
always had a huge draw on me! I feel totally free at the sea side, walking over the dunes from the chalet to the beach releases a sense of total freedom inside me and any stresses and strains simply slip away.
Wellies and a parka on a chilly day, looking for drift wood and shells is my idea of heaven. It inspires me to make something home-made and personal for the chalet.
Anyone who has stayed there already may have noticed the paintings are all homemade, as are the aspiration clipping boards, driftwood and shell crafts and the many items of vintage/salvage that I have lovingly restored back to life. I am constantly on the hunt for interesting items to add to the chalet!
I was lucky enough to purchase the chalet nearly 10 years ago, when I fell in love with this quirky area of huts and chalets of all different shapes, sizes and colours, each person adding their own personal stamp in one way or another. What could be better than being so close to the beach and sea?
It became my project to turn my chalet into a holiday home for my family, adding luxuries such as a dishwasher and washing machine to the kitchen. This year I totally renewed the bathroom, adding a free standing bath, and wooden floors throughout, as the sand gets places you can’t imagine!
I hope I have created a little haven only 100 yards from the beach, where whatever the British weather sends, you can have a magical holiday, spent with your family and friends, sitting comfortably by the burning stove, eating fish and chips and drinking cups of tea, whilst reading a tale or two from the Enid Blyton adventures!
I wish anyone who stays at CapeCod a very happy time and I say “LET’S BRING BACK THE GOOD OLD BUCKET AND SPADE BRITISH SEASIDE HOLIDAY”
