Attached to this is the two bedroom cottage and then on the end of this is another small stone building and some quaint stone steps leading up to the private outdoor space for the 2 bedroom cottage.
The courtyard in the middle of the hamlet is just beautiful! This large gravelled area, with its ancient stone well, is fringed with flower borders and pretty pots and is a riot of colour throughout the season. In June the climbing roses are a sight to behold!
Along with the holiday cottages there is also private gardens for the main house. The garden is landscaped close to the house with many interesting plants and shrubs, including huge tropical banana plants! There is also a fish pond, large ornamental vegetable garden and large pollytunnel, which is full to bursting with lovely tomatoes and peppers in the summer. The outreaches of the garden have been left more natural; with a pretty, natural brook running around the borders of the land, our garden attracts a huge array of birds and wildlife throughout the year; including some of Europe’s rarest butterflies!
From the garden the land slopes up into 3 large paddocks where, until recently, the owners kept horses. The fields are sort of naturally divided into 3 sections with the 2 top paddocks being more level than the first field. The fields are of a good mixed pasture and being elevated and well drained are therefore not prone to flooding in the wet weather. There is also a nice flat area in the former orchard which can be used for riding and is the perfect spot for a small riding school or large round pen. The roads and tracks in the surrounding area are so quiet with very little traffic and therefore ideal for good safe hacking out. There is also plenty of space in the grounds to install a good sized swimming pool if desired.
