About the Owner

My wife, Sarah, and I live in the adjacent farmhouse. My parents and a brother live locally and are on hand to help out with the property if we are absent. Our aim is to give our clients the best possible holiday and we pride ourselves on catering for a wide range of ages and interests. A member of the family is usually nearby to give help or advice if necessary.

All it says it is and more

  • 5 of 5

The property is well maintained and clean. It had all we needed.

The garden is properly fenced and very good for dogs.

We went on several walks following rain and the utility is wonderful for drying wet clothes. To come home to a Hot Tub after a long walk was a bonus!

I would certainly recommend it to anyone.

We thought it was better than it looked on the web site. The owners asked for suggestions to improve it and we could not think of any!

From the Owner

We carefully converted a farm building to create The Grain House which is a light, spacious building with a high standard of finish and design. We have tried to include everything that you might want in a holiday home and we are open to recommendations from our guests. It is perfectly situated for visiting many places of historic/ cultural interest and has plenty of attractions locally for all ages.

From the Owner

We have installed a hot tub in the garden, immediately outside the house, which is proving very popular. We also have a games barn adjacent to the house. It has 2 sitting areas, both with log fires and there is underfloor heating throughout, so you won't be cold! We have successfully catered for several disabled guests. The private garden is fenced and there is plenty of room for croquet, badminton etc, which we provide. We are happy to take dogs (2 max).
