Our home

Our lovely 13th century house is a true family home, it's spacious yet homely, we live in every room and there are no closed doors to preserve best rooms. The large farmhouse kitchen is a wonderful place to relax, it is the true heart of the house. All of the rooms are tastefully decorated and the furniture smart and very comfortable. Big TV's and games consoles for the children in the two main living rooms. We have a dining room for more formal dining but everyone seems to favour the kitchen.
The master bedroom is luxurious and very spacious. There are 5 further bedrooms and one en suite. Two of the bedrooms are in the attached cottage which has been a B&B until recently. (also very tastefully decorated) www.theoldrectory.org

The garden is well maintained and there is a fabulous fire pit which seats around 20 people, ensuring great evenings summer or winter.
