I am Liz
I moved to Dorset in 2006 with my partner Cath, as a result of a mid-life crisis. We quit our safe office jobs to escape to the country and the joys and perils of self-employment. We fell in love with Hillyground Cottage and its gardens the moment we saw it, thought it ideal for setting up a self-catering holiday busines, and have enjoyed sharing it with our visitors.
Sadly, Cath died in 2018 but I continue to happily provide holiday accommodation, grow vegetables and generally enjoy the relaxed Dorset environment.
In my spare time I design knitting patterns and quilts, and enjoy days out exploring Dorset and further afield. I particularly like visiting gardens, and have included some of our favourites on the Houses and Gardens page. I am also very keen on wildlife and like visiting nature reserves, some of which we describe on our Wildlife page.
