All hamlet properties offer comfort and attention to detail of a good hotel, combined with the privacy, independence and space of home amidst the ease and style of English Country Housing living. However, there are four things that really set this hamlet apart from other self catering holiday rentals:

It’s a paradise for children: for pre-schoolers a playground: swings and slide, woodland walk with swings on the trees, bantam chickens to feed and collect eggs and Carol our rabbit to feed and stroke. For teens a heated games room with pool table, table tennis, air hockey and table football. A woodland walk with a 6mtr swing over the sloping ground – thrill seeking.

There’s decor which is unashamedly English Country House style with natural limestone covering under-floor heating and wonderful fabrics – the atmosphere is elegant yet comfortable and all the properties have log fires some fabulous glass fronts which fold back to expose the ambiance of an open fire.

Some properties are pet friendly with safely secured gardens and the most wonderful walks. Your pet will be comfortable too with: ss bowls, warm pet shower, towels and pet bed.
