What the Owner Says We have loved living here and bringing up our family. A great house for children with space to run around outside away from any road. The position has offered us tranquility and fabulous views across the valley. We bought the extra acreage from the neighbour to give us the space for our horses and have found the income from the two cottages an added bonus. This is a truly fabulous house that offers everything you need for peaceful, grand country living.
