The properties retain beautifully characteristic exteriors and are all tastefully appointed. Each of the historic properties is furnished and decorated to the highest standard and provides all you will need to self cater with ease. Many of them still feature original details such as flagstone floors, oak ceiling beams and open fire places to excellently combine comfort with charm.
