Come for a spot of nature-watching: the ancient willow trees cast shade over stretches of lawn as kingfishers flit from branch to branch, and the river Stour runs right through.
You’re just across from the main house in your own contemporary bolthole above the detached garage. There’s a mini kitchen tucked behind louvre doors for making coffee or simple meals. Caroline leaves you a fine continental breakfast with homemade bread – on warm days you can eat on your private terrace overlooking the river.
Behind the house there are secluded water meadows with walking trails in all directions and lovely spots for picnics and swimming. Wander along the river to Spetisbury for a pint or supper at the village pub, The Woodpecker.
