If a spick and span house gives you pleasure, read no further. Peter has filled his home mostly with books, but chickens and swans might wander in too. Things are moved out of the way rather than put away, there are no hard and fast breakfast times and guests are welcome to use the kitchen. Bedrooms are large, light and comfy with sofas and armchairs; two have wood fires and the room at the top has exterior stone steps and a door that stays open all summer – fledgling swallows might sit on the beam between flying practices. The sitting room is cosy with a big fire, the lived-in conservatory looks across the valley… come and go as you please.
