A C18th former stable, carthouse with haylofts, converted with local materials to an elegant holiday house. Situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty, the Carthouse is in a former C18th farmyard. You could see a buzzards and deer on your way up to Eggardon Hillfort and from its ramparts Lyme Bay can be seen. Enclosed garden with a barbecue, lawn for ball games and adjoining Studio you can play table tennis. You can see on a clear night the stars or sit in a deck chair on the veranda with a refreshing drink. Solar panels supply hot water, boosted by a large log boiler, which also provides underfloor heating; padding about in bare feet is a pleasure!
I am interested in finding uses for the older buildings on the farm, using our own timber as much as possible. We have have tried to use good materials. As you will see the yard is stacked with timber drying for future projects. I hope visitors learn a little about the surroundings while relaxing on holiday.
Unwind in a quiet and friendly atmosphere in a beautiful setting.
