The back of the property forms a three sided courtyard, creating a completely private oasis in the middle of a village setting, with views up onto the bracken covered hills behind. Though please remember that whilst it is very private, we do have neighbours! For this reason, there is a no music rule in the garden – noise carries a long way in a small rural village.
Initial entry to the garden and main house is via a set of wooden gates from the car park, through the stone BBQ area and down into the courtyard.
Once these wooden gates are closed and bolted from the inside it is nigh impossible for small children and dogs to escape the walled garden, so you can enjoy your weekend in a relaxed way without constantly worrying about the whereabouts of your offspring or pets! For this reason also we do not give guests keys from the doors immediately into the car park as noise carries a long way at night.
Dogs are allowed, though not upstairs, & definitely not on furniture. Any fouling or damage to furniture will be charged for and deducted from the security deposit. We ask for £25.00 per dog.
The quickest & nearest places to exercise dogs are – out of the parking area, & up the lane in a loop repeatedly turning left, along the path round the primary school. There is a public right of way at the top of New St, at the back of the house, leading straight up onto the hill with stunning views of the surrounding countryside. Also, if you turn right out of the car-park and cross the road, go through the church yard and turn left, then right, there is a path leading to the swings and playing field, and a woodland hill-top walk, with a right hand turn through beautiful woodland and back into the village.

The owners redecorate, change and improve the interior décor regularly and occasionally have to carry out repairs as a result of previous bookings, and so guests must be aware that interiors might differ, or they might be offered a slightly different configuration of parts of the house – always the same as and often more than they have booked – never less.
