This 16th century farmhouse is one of the most sensitively and tastefully restored farmhouses I have come across, yet is still very comfortable and warm. The owners who live next door, have restored the house with great love and attention and a great deal of time devoted to ensuring that the restoration is as true as possible. The ancient beams, flag stone floors, great open fireplace, old renovated radiators and floorboards, stone walls and original oak crooked stairs, windows with shutters and oak doors all add to the experience and make this a fascinating place to stay. With a sunny garden with terrace, a summer house at the top of the garden to catch the views, a sundial, lovely big BBQ, garden furniture and well kept flower beds and lawns; there are lovely views from all the windows over the stream with the little waterfall and across the valley to the forest and hillside. Many walks straight from the door.
