Description

This old street house has its origins in the 17th century, but large parts were rebuilt in the 19th century. It has some exposed beams and some original tiled and flagstone floors. There is a rough plan and photographs on the Pictures page.

The property has:

The house is at the end of a terrace and backs onto a mews courtyard (not suitable for ball games), facing an old stone stables (used as a storeroom and locked), and other outbuildings. Our "garden/field" (very suitable for ball games, 80 yards long, surrounded by hedges) is about 50 yards down a footpath past the house.

Heating is by off-peak night storage heaters, electric heaters, and by the wood-burning stove. The water is heated by off-peak electricity (a boost is available during the day). Off-peak electricity and wood for the stove are included in the rent.  The prices include bed linen (duvet covers/sheets/pillow cases). You are also welcome to bring your own linen, in which case there will be a reduction of £5 per bed (see Booking Form).

There is a payphone in the house.  It is factory set to a minimum of 20p per call, and you may prefer to use your mobile.

There is wireless broadband in the house.

Furnishings are in keeping with a comfortable (rather than a smart) holiday home. The house is best with only 8 visitors, though it can sleep up to 9.

Due to relatively steep stairs and steps down to the kitchen/dining room, the house is not suitable for disabled people, although "active elderly" will have little problem.
