A friendly, slightly cluttered house with fires in many rooms, books as wallpaper, bushes full of chattering sparrows and finches. Find a sunny, ramshackle conservatory overlooking the garden, chickens, ducks and canal, and an equally ramshackle sitting room with wood-burner, sofas and piano – no TV. Bedrooms are large and generously cosy, with more books, soft goose down, armchairs and bathrooms with views. Breakfast, at any time you wish, on local bacon and sausages, perhaps with chickens clucking at your feet. Unconventional and amiably chaotic. We love it and have awarded Peter prizes. Walk into the hills from the back door.
