The house was in a terrible state when it was bought and a small fortune was spent updating it and putting 5 bathrooms in.
It was only envisaged that the first floor would be restored but during the building works it was realised that there had been a fire and the whole top floor floor had to be taken out and restored so the whole house was updated at the same time. The top floor is shut off to guests as this is the owners private floor.
The family have another house in the village, about 1 minute walk from this one so if you are looking for a two family holiday this is perfect. All the joys of being on holiday together but not living together 24/7. Click here for more details
