The front door opens into a quarry-tiled entrance hall. The drawing-room/dining-room is on the left, 19′ square and flooded with light on three sides from the large windows, which look onto the courtyard and the garden, and the parkland of Bruern Abbey beyond. Epsom’s drawing room has been completely transformed. Curtains, upholstery, loose covers and tablecloths are all new and different- the colours are blue, beige, black and white, taken from the Malabar stripes of the curtains, and it’s given it a wonderful lift.
At the dining end of the room, there’s an antique mahogany dining-table and rope-back chairs, next to an oak serving-table. A couple of writing tables offer an array of Tourist Board leaflets and brochures. Prints, books, blue-and-white lamps with pleated silk shades and a ravishing collection of flower-printed plates make Epsom feel like someone’s cherished home rather than a holiday cottage.
The kitchen is on the other side of the hall. It’s got marble surfaces, a Belfast sink, blue and white Spode china on the walls and blue and white tiles over the off-white units. It’s decorative enough to eat in; the kitchen table seats 6 – and it’s a dream to cook in as well, with a big fridge freezer, dish washer, microwave, hob and oven, and plate rack.
The deep blue grey master bedroom on the first floor is dominated by a splendid carved 18th century four-poster with pink-and-white hangings in Colefax and Fowler’s rough linen. The ensuite shower room is tiled in pale faux Carrara marble to match the genuine marble on the wall-to-wall vanity unit: It has double sinks under the wall-to-wall mirror, there’s a heated towel rail.
To the left of the stairs is the twin-bedded room, papered in blue-and-white stripes with headboards upholstered in a blue and rosy red batik, and on the right of the stairs is the single room, whose white painted faux bamboo four-poster bed looks wonderful against the pale blue and white chinoiserie wallpaper. Under the window there’s a little white painted 18th century washstand with running water.
Both bedrooms share a large, pretty bathroom with light flowery Colefax and Fowler wallpaper, a painted marble topped washstand, heated towel rail and bath with shower over it.
One of the reasons for Epsom’s popularity is its big, attractive garden. It’s just a step through the French windows in the kitchen to the terrace with vines and rose-covered pergola, garden furniture, and barbeque. Opposite are wide borders blooming in every shade of pink and white and crimson.
