What a beautiful property - tiny but beautiful. We had a fabulous time - as there is only room for a microwave, toaster and kettle you can wander down the path to a lovely pub for dinner. So quiet and comfy we loved it!

We had a lovely time at the Watch Tower, it is a beautiful location in grassy grounds. It's easy to travel to other places from there due to it's central location. The upstairs is very comfortable, but not so much downstairs. We were able to sit outside for breakfasts and a lot of our meals with the weather being so good mid Aug. We would love to vRead moreisit again but we have a pug now and it's not pet friendly and we want to take our pug with us in future. Owner was lovely and friendly. Hide
