Great House is one of the finest village houses in the vicinity. Built of a delightful mellowed stone, it is a charming property dating from the early 18th Century and full of delightful character features. These include exposed beams, sash double-glazed windows, stone floors, fireplaces and log burners. The house has in recent years been the subject of complete restoration and refurbishment and the result is extremely comfortable, well-appointed accommodation which retains its original charm.

The bedrooms are on two floors and all have delightful views and built in wardrobes. The bath and shower rooms are well appointed, one being en suite on the second floor making ideal guest or children’s accommodation. There is ample loft storage accessed by a pull down ladder. An additional self-contained wing allows the house to expand for additional guest accommodation or office space. Great House sits amidst lovely grounds including a stunning garden created by the current owners. To the front is a large lawn with stone terrace, lavender flanked pathways, herbaceous beds, specimen trees and shrubs dotted throughout.
