The property dates back to the early 19th century and was once used as a hunting lodge. Today, it’s full of charm and character, while the thatched roof has recently been replaced. 

The accommodation measures 1,151 sq ft and has a countryside feel, with features including traditional stone walls, tiled flooring and exposed brickwork.
