The Old Workshop is a stunning 18th century barn conversion that has been a labour of love to convert. Previously it was the farm workshop and prior to that used by the carter and his cart horses which gave plenty of inspiration for the conversion.

Croft Cottage is the latest addition and offers both style and luxury. When you first enter the huge kitchen-diner the first thing you will be drawn to are the spectacular views to the woods and hills beyond and then the patio doors leading onto a beautiful private garden.
