Since taking on the property in 2008 Jane & I have worked full time on a major renovation of the house with tremendous input from a small number of committed local tradesmen & specialists.

We’ve tried to preserve as much of the original character of the house as possible using traditional materials and recycling where possible..

and foremost but is now far too nice not to share!”

Future Plans

..include in the short term the extension of the kitchen, the  addition of a conservatory, the enlargement and landscaping of the courtyard, the creation of a self-contained 2 bedroomed annexe/letting unit in the former Cider Loft and the erection of a polytunnel in the old orchard. After that we plan for the conversion of some of the barns for further holiday accommodation and maybe the creation of a large wildlife pond or recreational fishing lake in the field. Watch these spaces! (blog on its way!)
