Very remote location but that is the attraction together with the rear garden views. Large greenhouse effect living area makes for great open-plan outlook but too hot in summer and no air conditioning to help. Lovely quirky cottage with separate self contained out house. Very enjoyable stay and would recommend to other families.

A large spacious very well equipped house with open plan design. Large decking area and garden, secure enough for our dog & great views of the countryside. Rural location reached by very narrow lanes but close to A30 and A338 with plenty of great places and walks within 45 to 60 mins drive. Would definitely recommend this property.
