Off the main road, past the redbrick houses (one of which is the delightful owners’) and there it is: a pretty little former cattle shed, all on one level, with a pitched roof and a private drive. A couple will feel romantic here, but there’s room for a baby too – and the family dog. The space was once used as stables before Chris and Graham converted it themselves.
A wood-burner keeps things cosy and you’ll find plenty of logs. There is a leafy, private garden with barbecue and an oak garden building with stunning views. After a long, lovely walk you can have a soak in the claw-footed tub with a glass of something local.
There’s an excellent gastropub a three-minute walk away and a golf course over the road with a fabulous spa if you need any pampering. The farm shop in nearby Holt has local produce and you can pick your own fruit in summer. Pack up a picnic for walking the Sandstone Trail.
