Smaller parties requiring one or two bedrooms might like to look at the listing of cottages in the area. These cottages are usually the homes of the former estate workers with a number grouped together near the manor house. They have the use of a nearby swimming pool which is shared with the other cottages. They all have the highest quality conversion and have been inspected by us.
