Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This beautifully photographed book explores the lure of the countryside: the wide open spaces and starry skies, the lack of neighbours, noise and pollution, the ability to 'get away from it all'. Many people are choosing to persue their 'sea change' inland, and are creating some spectacular homes in well-hidden locations.
