    “A secluded, cosy, quiet retreat and yet within easy access of the peaks.”

    If you don't fancy driving anywhere, there are walks all around the hamlet and plenty of footpaths. Rambling, running, cycling paradise! Personally I walked a lot with my terrier and took a lot of photographs one of my hobbies. I will paint from my pictures and write a few short stories. Pure heaven!

With stone floor and beams, the ground floor is open plan with a well-equipped modern kitchen, dining table and comfortable lounge area with the woodburner set in a stone hearth fireplace.
