Great to see Country Homes & Interiors still on the shelves this morning at Compton Village Shop & Tea Room – one of my favourite places to stop for a quick cuppa when I’m out pedalling around the South Downs.
Turns out that my passion for cycling in the fabulous West Sussex countryside is something I share with Helen Pattinson – founder of the thriving chocolate company Montezuma’s.
Recently, I’d the pleasure of interviewing this vivacious entrepreneur for the My Kind of Country pages in this month’s (April 2015) Country Homes & Interiors.
At the time, Helen told me: ‘The pressures of a busy life can be put into perspective during a quick bike ride in the Downs, with just the birds and trees for company.’ How very true!
To find how Helen and her husband Simon (another keen cyclist) switched careers to launch their business, why, like me, they love living in this area and their plans for a Montezuma’s-inspired Easter egg hunt, pick up Country Homes & Interiors, unwind and and enjoy a leisurely browse.
