SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION 
Nestled in a beautiful secluded valley, Cwm House is a Grade II listed Mediaeval farmhouse dating back to 1540 when Henry VIII was king. The timber framed detached property is approached up a private drive past a stream and large natural pond with an island where wild ducks and moorhens nest. The house and gardens of nearly an acre are sheltered by The Black Hill, believed to be the inspiration for author Bruce Chatwin's award-winning novel On The Black Hill after he stayed with friends in the valley in the 1970s. The oldest part of Cwm House has been painstakingly restored by the current owner with attention to period details that give it a wealth of roses-round-the-door old world charm as well as modern facilities. The property was significantly extended in 2002 with the addition of a large baronial hall-style room leading down to a lower ground floor.
