East Sussex, UK

Nestling in lush East Sussex countryside is Fletching Lodge, a neo-Gothic folly with more than a touch of fairytale about it. In its idyllic English garden is a swimming pool at the bottom of which the word ‘Believe’ is written in Gothic-style script.

LHL created a poolhouse that’s as colourfully eccentric as its surroundings. Its living area includes expansive seating, throws and needlepoint cushions, Moroccan woven coffee tables and a fun photographic triptych titled Geronimo, by Trowbridge Gallery.

Through a fully-equipped kitchen area is a shower room with a stainless steel bucket washbasin suspended from an ornate framed mirror, against a backdrop of a metallic wallcovering by Florence Broadhurst. After all, you can’t make a wonderland without a little Florence
