I recently did a photo shoot of the charming Happy Ours self catering holiday home, in Sedgefield. Marius and Ida Vosloo have lovingly renovated this cute little house with our beautiful Sedgefield forest as a backdrop. Plenty of thought has gone into the decor and there is evidence of Ida’s sweet personality and love of colour in every little detail.
The house sleeps 2 to 6 people, has an open plan living area with a fabulous fireplace and a tiny pantry tucked behind the kitchen. This cosy home-away-from-home is 5 minutes walk from the village centre and a very short drive from at least 3 of our beautiful beaches.
Here are some images from the shoot.
With this open plan living area, large patio and braai area, Happy Ours is perfect for a family getaway.
I totally fell in love with those gorgeous wooden floors.
The bedrooms are airy and furnished in crisp white with pastel accents.
How sweet are those gumboots?
The pantry is a huge bonus and the vintage pudding bowls in turquoise glass, delicious eye candy. This adorable holiday home is now officially open for business, make your reservation here.
“I do love the beginning of the summer hols,’ said Julian. They always seem to stretch out ahead for ages and ages.’
‘They go so nice and slowly at first,’ said Anne, his little sister. ‘Then they start to gallop.”
