Lucy Cleland

Country-house connoisseur

Lucy honed her glossy-magazine skills at Condé Nast, before launching Country & Town House House: a magazine aimed at city folk searching for their dream out-of-town house. She may spend most of her working day poring over rural porn, but at the weekends, Lucy can be found digging the vegetable garden at her family home in the New Forest. So what's her big boutiquey daydream? To renovate a dilapidated old colonial house in Goa and turn it into a luxury hotel, of course.
