You’re in the heart of the village with its small shop, friendly pub and the Melvilles’ lovely 18th-century farmhouse. It’s a comfortable, relaxed home; dogs wander, horses whinny, and there’s a beautiful garden to wander with a Kiftsgate rose and a swimming pool for sunny days. On the second floor, off a corridor filled with paintings, are three florally inspired bedrooms: comfortable, bright and spacious with views to the village green. Breakfast leisurely on all things local at the long table in a dining room filled with silver and china. There’s a pleasant guests’ sitting room to relax in too.
