In a spectacular setting, a 17th-century dairy and two perfect studios, one up, one down. Private entrances lead to big beamed spaces that marry immaculate efficiency with unusual beauty. A gorgeous Indian door frame serves as the en suite door upstairs, soft colours and contemporary touches lift the spirit, plentiful books and DVDs entertain you and a continental breakfast is supplied – homemade and organic whenever possible. The gardens are amazing with lovely places to sit, a sweet old summer house and an Italian knot garden – very Wolf Hall! Take walks in deeply peaceful countryside; top-notch places to eat are an easy drive.
