A delightful semi-detached stone holiday cottage converted from Grade 2 listed buildings in the grounds of The Old Hall – With a private hot tub for 4.


A delightful semi-detached stone holiday cottage converted from Grade 2 listed buildings in the grounds of The Old Hall, sleeps 4.  Kitchen/diner, separate sitting room with wood burner to ground floor. Double and twin bedrooms upstairs.

Accessed from the old entrance to The Hall between 2 square piers with flat stone coping. Here the cottage wall, unlike the rest of the building, is built of Elizabethan brick laid in English garden bond over a stone plinth; a status symbol from a time when bricks were favoured over stone.
