We love this unique property and the fact that a piece of history has been restored and made into a practical and luxurious home.

We think the setting and surrounding land is utterly breathtaking, this is country living with a twist, where you can enjoy the best of both worlds, explore the delights of the countryside or hide away in blissful tranquillity; This home is an escape, an escape where one can wind back the clock to a more carefree lifestyle, a simpler time, for perfect relaxed times for you, your family and friends, its an escape where early morning mists, pristine hills and age-old woodland harbour kingfishers, bats, foxes, and hares - your love affair with the outdoors begins here, quite literally, on your doorstep...
