A surprise night away to a country estate was the perfect excuse to road test my new wax cotton Barbour jacket
. When we weren't enjoying the spa or chilling in our room at Frimley Hall
, we took in the gardens and surrounding woodland and not even a British downpour could spoil our outdoorsy getaway. Fresh air is the best cure for any ailment, I say.
My dream entrance, I would love my house to be covered in Wisteria.
Cut mid-calf, Barbour's wellies are the perfect throw-on footwear. Mine live right by the backdoor for grizzly days when flip flops in the garden just won't do.
