Beneath the stone exterior is a traditional haven with a bright and cheerful kitchen/diner that’s perfectly equipped for romantic suppers for two.

Outside, the shared grounds and gardens are straight out of a fairy tale with spectacular views, flowerbeds, shrubs and a bubbling stream. There’s a shared utility room and summerhouse you are welcome to use too.
