The property is nicely equipped and has a modern fresh look. Particularly liked the Sonos sound system and quality TV. Great view across the valley farms. Slight downside is the single track lane access.

This is a great property in a lovely peaceful location. Very private with great views and lots of local wildlife to see from the comfort of the terrace. We saw a fox, roe deer, buzzards, owl and bat on our first evening. The walk into Lyme via Mill Lane and along the river is beautiful-butterflies galore, dragonflies, trout to be seen. The walk bacRead morek has a steep section but isn't beyond the capacity of anyone with reasonable mobility. Kevin is a thoughtful host who is there if needed. Loved it. Hide
