Champernhayes Farmhouse details

This impressive stone farmhouse was once part of the original, prosperous farm that was built to provide food for the local community and small mediaeval monastery. It is tastefully decorated and recently refurbished to offer a combination of modern boutique and medieval charm. The sitting room has its original 15th Century flagstone flooring and 12 inch thick walls built from original wattle and daub construction, having lasted over 650 years!

One of six properties on the estate, we also offer Champernhayes Barn sleeping up to 10 guests.
