Jo Wood’s Grade II listed farmhouse blends old, new and country styles

How did a self-confessed big city lover end up living without electricity, with well water and with sheep as neighbors? Jo Wood says she asked herself that question every day for her first six months here. But after living in cities around the world, the lure of the country proved too great to resist. Jo is the CEO of her own organic beauty line, and one of her dreams was to live off the grid, so when this house came along, she took the plunge.

Three years later, Jo has converted from the country and her old farmhouse – one of the the world’s best houses – and his garden are transformed.
