HIGH HOUSE

High House

High House is in beautiful order throughout with doors leading to the gardens from the kitchen, sitting room and dining room. The main door, however, leads to a spacious hallway and the reception rooms can be accessed from here.

The stone stairways are over three hundred years old and worn down by many generations - they lead to the first floor which has two double bedrooms and two bathrooms (one of which is ensuite with bath and shower, the other is for guests using the second bedroom and has a shower).

Outside the garden covers all sides of the house with a paddock area to the South, decking area (with garden furniture) by the kitchen and lots of nooks and crannies elsewhere. There is also a gin & tonic deck (please note that there is steep drop from here making it unsuitable for small children).

Woodland leading to the river

There are several acres of woodland that you are welcome to explore. Please note, however, that these woodlands are private and as such do not have set paths. The woods lead down to the river which can be lovely to swim in.

  • The house is heated with oil central heating which is included in the price.
  • The beds are made up for you, please note that you need to bring your own towels.
  • I'm afraid we cannot accept pets at High House.
  • The house is no smoking throughout.
  • We advise guests to take out holiday insurance.
