We had a lovely time staying with Keir and Louise Lusby (yet another Sawday selection) at Whitehouse Farm Cottage. The pair also run a studio in Shepperton which designs and fabricates props for film and TV so it was quite exciting to share the breakfast table with stories and examples of their work.
On Sunday we caught up with Helen and Benny who were the perfect hosts. After lunch we took a whistlestop tour across Smith's Lawn, stopped briefly at the new Savill Gardens visitor centre and were treated to a river cruise before checking out the ancient oaks near Cranbourne, the polo stables at Flemish Farm and back to their cottage for a lovely dinner!
On Tuesday we took an excursion to the somewhat disappointing Brooklands Museum and the impressive RHS Gardens at Wisley. Finally, our break was wrapped up with a trip into London on Wednesday to the V&A.
