3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6

The owners are in residence at the top of the house in a separate apartment in the attic rooms during June.

The owner is always available by phone or email and local house carers are also on hand if needed.

This is a charming house, spacious and beautifully appointed, we wanted for nothing. The kitchen is wonderfully equipped, everything one wanted was there.
