Kinmoza! - Fosse Farmhouse Inside

As well as the outside, I also checked out the inside of Fosse Farmhouse as shown in both the first season of Kiniro Mosaic and the second (Hello!! Kin-iro Mosaic) since I was staying the night.

The small bear door stop is the same as in the show.

Alice's mother tells Shinobu that she can come right in.

This is the dining room on the ground floor.

The rabbit and hen figurines on the mantelpiece in the dining room have switched places. If you look closely you can also spot Gromit and Shaun the Sheep figurines.

Caron Cooper, the owner of the house, is a fan of Shaun the Sheep so she's also bought this big statue of him that's placed outside.

Alice's family and Shinobu eating dinner in the dining room. On the right in the picture you can see some Kinmoza goods on a small table. These were originals and signed items you weren't allowed to take pictures of.

I also had dinner here. Chicken pot pie was on the menu.

Since I had booked a room for the night here I also had a full English breakfast the morning after.

The room I had booked was The Pine Room upstairs, which is the room Shinobu had in the anime.

This body pillow which was signed by Shinobu's voice actress, Asuka Nishi, was here when I arrived. Caron told me she got it signed when she went to AnimeJapan 2017.

There was another pillow signed by Aya's voice actress Risa Taneda in this room as well.

Alice and Karen plays with hanafuda cards in the room.

The Pine Room en-suite bathroom was also shown in the anime.

The flowers on the right was plastic ones in real life.

Shinobu tells Alice that she put cherry blossom scented bath mix into the bath.

The window and the medicine cabinet in the bathroom are the same.

Alice enjoying the cherry blossom scented bath. The rubber duck in the background is a different one compared to the show.

Another room upstairs is The Pink Room. This is the room Alice's room is based on. It's quite different in real life though, but you can see the closet and the small bed in the corner that's somewhat similar.

Image from S2E12 - 00m06s

The window, chair and dressing table in this room is also similar to the ones shown in the anime, but the main bed is not.

This hallway that Karen runs through doesn't lead from Alice's room in real life. The room is actually located through the open door on the right.

You can also see this sink in the screenshot above. There was an Alice towel hanging here when I was here.

Alice looking for Karen after she's run off in the stairs between the floors.

The living room on the ground floor, which is not seen in the anime, is filled with various Kinmoza goods fans have left.

There's even a copy of the funny doll with the 4 on it that Karen gives to Alice here.

Fans has also brought lots of Japanese kokeshi dolls similar to the one in the screenshot above that were placed in the dining room.

In the living room there were also one of these guestbooks.

Lots of messages left by fans over the years.

I wrote in it as well of course.

One of the rooms I didn't get to visit was The Stables Cottage since somebody else were staying there, but I got some postcards as a gift from Caron including one that shows the cottage room as seen above in the top left. This room is depicted as the living room instead of the real life living room. I didn't get to visit the kitchen either since it was off limits for guests.
