The local pub is a short 2-minute stroll from the house, perfect for an easy Sunday lunch.

Recently refurbished, Pond House offers a sophisticated interior. Guests can expect a wonderful blend of old and new; period features are dotted around the home with contemporary finishes and heaps of technology.

The modern fitted kitchen is an engaging space, perfect for casual breakfast. Large glass door opens directly onto the stone terrace that beautifully wraps around the back of the property. The terrace is the spot to take full advantage of the picturesque garden and enjoy a BBQ.

There is a smart and comfortable living room, running the full length of the property with a piano. The adjoining cinema room in sumptuous dark tones with cosy velvet seating is prefect on cold winter evenings.
