These fun, characterful boltholes with nature on the doorstep are featured in Stay Wild, a new book from Canopy & Stars
Standing in a 100-year-old apple orchard close to the Malvern Hills and on the edge of Knapp and Papermill nature reserve, this house is the work of two generations of a family with Scandinavian heritage. There’s a strong Swedish vibe: from the structure of the “little cottage” to the pine-lined interior and the red-and-blue colour scheme. In among the trees is a huge firepit. It’s a beautiful spot, with the orchard carpeted with meadow grasses in summer and its boughs heavy with fruit in autumn, and a gate leading straight on to the nature reserve.
