Gorgeous house that I would happily live in if I could add a few modern conveniences :-) Beautiful setting and you can do a circular walk too. Always worth seeing if the lavender project next dorset is open too.

This small, but interesting old manor house is an absolute delight. Just tucked away a few hundred yards from the main road this is worth a look. Furthermore you can then enjoy a lovely walk by the river complete with old barns, a hydrowater wheel...More

A sensitively restored building in an idyllic riverside location. Small, but lots of little details to enjoy. Check out the beautiful hand- made clear glass in the leaded lights!
