Further Notes

This is a VERY old house which has been lovingly restored. We do however have wonky and uneven floors in places! Guests must be able to climb stairs.

The house recently featured on ‘Celebrity Help my House is Haunted’ on the Discovery Channel. The film team commented that they had “rarely encountered such warm and friendly atmosphere”, and all those who visit notice a peace and warmth that is hard to explain.
We leave it to those who visit to make their own judgment, but can neither guarantee a meeting with our long-standing houseguests, nor be responsible in any way if you do. All we ask is that you are respectful of the house and those from down the centuries, to whom some believe it is still home.

Guest access – Access via a key held in a keysafe on the front gate. Ample on site parking for at least 6 cars. Large covered bike storage area.
