About Lynn Lawton
I am a part-time tutor of English for international students at a university. I have many friends abroad, and my son's family live in Colorado in the US. I live in Surrey in a small 18th century cottage. My interests are nature and the environment, history, house renovation, music, walking and gardening.
Lynn Lawton purchased this house in 1970
Why Lynn Lawton chose Melton
My parents bought this house in 1970 when my father's work (international educational bookseller) required him to move to the Midlands. My son spent all his school holidays there when he was growing up. After my mother died in 2008 I decided to renovate the property and retain some of the furniture, books and other items that had been used when my parents lived there.
What makes this house unique
This house has a calm and happy atmosphere and gets the sun in the kitchen in the morning and in the sitting room in the afternoon. When the weather is not so kind it is cosy and comfortable and there is a log fire too. There is also a proper dining room- the house is traditional and elegant but also spacious and unfussily furnished. The countryside is good for walks and bike rides and there are plenty of places to visit. Nottingham is about 40 minutes drive away.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We all had a lovely time. ....with dry and bright weather we were outdoors most of the time. Stilton, pork pies, fresh strawberry scones, cycling at Rutland Water and a stroll along the canal. A great extended weekend!
