Situated in a landscape unchanged for more than two centuries, this location is an authentic former farm labourer’s dwelling that has been sensitively restored to reinstate its 19th century character. It now provides the most picturesque and homely atmosphere and promises a period escape from modern day living.
Features include a Victorian coal fired kitchen range, a larder for storing food, oil lamps for illumination, hand pump for drawing drinking water from the well, laundry room complete with coal fired copper and mangle and a tin bath for fireside bathing. A traditional vegetable and herb garden completes the picture of simple 19th century rural living.
