Close to The Tower and The Ruin, but further up the hill, is The Folly, an unusual new build encased in native wood with a tower at one end. It's an impressive and intriguing piece of design, Tardis-like inside, comfortable, well-loved and well maintained, all white walls, gleaming tiles, varnished pine – and big windows to pull in the views. Down a short flight of steps is a big circular living area with a sofa and leather armchair, a cow hide rug on heated floors and doors to terraces front and back so you can chase the sun. Above is the bedroom, a fabulous round space, bright and light, with a high conical roof and a balcony for more views. Who would not want to spend a night here! The bathroom, functional, neutral, is downstairs, the kitchen is a cook's delight, and the abundant grandeur of the setting, with its backdrop of pine and birch woodland, is neutralised by rolling lawns. Restaurants are nine miles but there's a nice little wildlife centre with a café a walk away, and the owners provide you with great maps. Once the stillness of 80 acres descends, let the tumbling burn lull you to sleep.
