Early Georgian, circa 1740. Please note this is an old house with a lived in feel. Most of our guests like that. Please do not come if you are looking for modern and spotless accomodation! To stay in houses like this usually costs a lot more than we charge. Our price is reflective of the fact that our bathrooms while totally functional are not of the latest up to date mode. If you are looking for that please do not come and then complain afterwards. You have been warned! What you will get is comfortable accommodation in a friendly, historic, eclectic and unique house.
Two double bedrooms are currently offered as bed and breakfast, one with ensuite bathroom and the other with a private bathroom (bath) near the bedroom.
Fully cooked breakfast included in price. Wifi available (free). Short walk into village where you will find restaurants, pubs and cafes. Local shop for papers.
