The 1750s farmhouse is rustic and family orientated, and if you don’t come expecting an immaculate environment you will enjoy it here. In the old bake house there’s a small sitting room with original beams and bread oven, TV and WiFi; relax in here on cooler days, with cats and a dog to keep you company. On sunny days tea is served in the garden. Bedrooms are pretty and comfy with oriental rugs and antique furniture. Nicholas – a tad eccentric for some – is half French and cooks amazing breakfasts on the Aga, while Ginny’s great grandfather (Arnold Hills) founded West Ham football team. Come and go as you please.
