C16th farmhouse in peaceful location with wonderful views and walks right from the doorstep. Which for many years has opened its doors to people from all over the world. A home of character with oak panelled walls,beamed celings a flag stoned dining room which also has an orginal brick bread oven and ingelnook. Some people would call it quaint.
