‘There is no life I know to compare with pure imagination. Living there, you’ll be free if you truly wish to be’
Hello, I am Fiona Cartwright - proud of the last of my dahlias at a recent Creative Country House Party I look forward to showing you Hazelwood - here's a bit about me.
As long as I can remember, I have created things. I see almost everything as a picture, and whether it be turning a scrap of fabric into something new, or designing a garden (or a house!) I don't seem to be able to stop recreating, re-using and re-inventing. I learnt to use a sewing machine and a pair of knitting needles at my mother's knee, and as a child always presented my family with home made presents (with varying success!). I was an avid Blue Peter watcher, and when it came to having my own children, they had no choice but to cut, stick and join in! I have always loved sharing my passion, and over nearly 20 years as an interior designer and event planner, I have enjoyed helping people to see their vision and to make it a reality. I am now excited to be able to offer the tranquility and inspiration that I have found here, at Hazelwood Farm, to a wider audience.
I have been so lucky to be able to indulge my creativity in harmony with the nature that is all around us in North Norfolk, and the ever changing landscape means that I need never be finished!
