Full description


Portland House is a substantial 2-storey Georgian property which has been converted into 2 flats.

No. 1 is situated on the ground floor and offers generously proportioned accommodation with the additional advantage of a walled courtyard garden.

The apartment has been holiday let by the present owners but is equally well suited as a permanent home or private holiday retreat.
