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 kitchen is large and has dining for six people,
plus a comfy sofa making this a real living kitchen. It is fully
equipped with gas range with electric oven, microwave, fridge, freezer,
dishwasher and plenty of storage space. There is a washing machine
and tumble drier in a separate utility room.
The sitting room is spacious with TV, DVD player,
woodburning stove & CD player.
For formal dining, there is a table to seat six in
stylish surroundings. The room is cool in summer and warm in winter
with a wood burning stove.
There is also a toilet downstairs.
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).
The ensuite bathroom to the master bedroom
with bath, shower & "a loo with a view"
At the top of the house is the attic suite with retreat
room to take advantage of the stunning views, top double bedroom
also with views and shower-room with WC (please take note of low
ceilings and low beams).
Throughout the house, fine attention has been made
to detail, creating a house that is beautiful throughout.

The garden with little nooks & crannies
The kitchen door
The decking area by the kitchen
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.
