"Take an 1850s coach house, add a photographer/weaver couple with stacks of creativity and you get Five Turrets, a baronial pile given a stylish facelift on the edge of Selkirk. Reopened in 2018, the four-bedroom house has a striking triple-height kitchen and mezzanine lounge, decorated with the couple’s landscape shots and wall hangings; bright furnishings and quirky lighting adding flair. The billiard room, piano room and orchard garden are bonuses, likewise pints at the Fleece, a one-minute walk away."
"Because...you're looking for a getaway with friends that has Insta-clout and activities on top."
"..all the turrets and brickwork give it a Disney-castle vibe that we’re very into. You’ll fall in love with the exterior, but prepare to be blown away by the inside too."
