We are a 5 bedroom bed and breakfast farmhouse which dates from the early 15th century. Three rooms are on the first floor in the farm house and the 2 remaining rooms are outside in the courtyard. They were completed in 2007 and were converted from an old farm building. The rooms outside are suitable for everyone including the elderly and some disabled people.
We have 4 stars from Visit Britain.
We can be contacted by phone, mobile, fax or e-mail for availability. It is useful to have an arrival time if possible.

Arrival & Car Parking Facilities
There is a car park in front of the house that can hold 4 cars. There is parking by the courtyard which can take 2 cars and there is an overflow car parking area around the back of the main car parking area.
From the main car park there are 4 steps up to the path which leads you to the front door where there is one step in to the house.
If parking in the courtyard for the 2 rooms outside, there are no steps and it is smooth paving which means a wheelchair can get straight into the building.

Main entrance is a large oak door. For guests who need to get in after 10pm there is a key available for another door, as the oak door only has a bolt. There is a hall and passage way that leads to the staircase.
