This is a 17th century farmhouse, now completely modernised. Though not isolated, it is very peacefully situated on a quiet country lane well away from the nearest main road.
What is unusual and pleasant about the house is that you drive in from the lane through high gates into a courtyard which is surrounded on three sides by the house and its barns. On the third side it opens out to the garden - about an acre in all, largely laid to grass and completely fenced in, making this an ideal and safe area for children to play. There is an open-fronted barn overlooking the courtyard which has been set up with table tennis and other games. A selection of bicycles is provided.
The vacation rental house is very comfortable and well furnished, though with an eye to making it suitable for families with children. The entrance door leads into the well fitted and equipped kitchen, then through a short corridor (door to shower room with wc and washhand basin) to the large airy living/dining room with French windows on both sides to the garden and courtyard.
Large dining table for 8, comfortable sitting area with satellite (100+ channels) television, dvd player and surround sound hi-fi. Beyond the living room is a large double bedroom with twin beds and separate single sofabed.
Back to the kitchen, a door leads to another double bedroom with king-size double bed and en suite bathroom, and another door takes you up a few stairs to the third double bedroom, also with twin beds.
In all then there are two double and one triple bedrooms and two full bathrooms.
Linen and towels available on option at £7.50 per person. Christmas and New Year - please ask.
