The Horse House has a retro feel inside with plenty of original mid-century details but has all the modern technology and appliances you’ll need including dedicated Wi-Fi throughout and a fully fitted kitchen with dishwasher and washer/dryer.

The Horse House is super dog-friendly.   You can bring up to two well behaved dogs with you but please only bring them if they are good with other dogs as there is a resident dachshund, Limo, living in the main house. There may also sometimes be cattle or sheep in the adjacent fields so no chasers please!

The large living area has a vaulted ceiling with two sofas, dining table for four and wonderful views of the woodland and surrounding countryside.  As well as the Smart TV, there is a Bluetooth speaker, DVD player (and a selection of DVDs you can borrow). 

Outside There is a huge sliding glass door along one wall of the living area which gives you access to a private terrace with outdoor seating and dining areas and a firepit leading into the small woodland.  At the bottom of the wood you’ll find a sweet little hut made locally from reclaimed wood (perfect for meditating or just admiring the views) as well as a hammock, great for lounging in while you listen to the breeze through trees, perhaps sipping on a chilled glass of white wine.

The kitchen is fully equipped with (hopefully) everything you might need including plates, glasses, mugs, cutlery, kitchen utensils and a corkscrew of course!  There is an induction hob, a main oven and a combination oven/microwave.  It's also equipped with a dishwasher and washer/dryer both of which can be used with the eco-friendly detergents supplied.

Your welcome box includes a range of fair-trade teas, coffee and biscuits as well your choice of fresh milk or non-dairy equivalent, bread, a selection of Kelloggs Variety packs, butter, jam and marmalade.  For stays of three nights or longer, we'll reward you with a bottle of prosecco or wine (or beer or cider) depending on your preference.  We'll even make sure you've got ice cubes in the freezer!

The upstairs bedroom has a king size solid oak loft-style bed, an oak gateleg table so you can sit and have your morning coffee, a comfy sofa and a dressing table.  You’ll find luxurious White & Green linen and fluffy towels as well as a hair dryer and a supply of hangers (if you need more, just ask).  The bedroom has an apex ceiling so you may need to watch your head.  No dogs in the bedroom please – if you need to borrow a stairgate, please request one.

The modern bright bathroom, which is downstairs, has a large walk-in shower, vanity unit and WC.  "Rethinking the eco-mood" is the motto for the Botanika range of toiletries provided, which highlights care and attention for the environment: the shampoo, conditioner and shower gel bottles are made out of 100% recyclable PET whilst the guest soap is hand-made out of vegetable oils with a fresh fragrance of almond milk, and comes in the shape of a spa hot stone.  The soap contains nutshell scrub.

"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Horse House. It is a wonderful house, beautifully decorated and sparkling clean. So much thought has gone into the house that guests want for nothing. It is the best-equipped house that we’ve stayed in and even our dog appreciated the cosy blanket and treats that were provided for him! We, in turn, appreciated the most generous welcome pack which included milk, bread, local butter, eggs and a bottle of wine! Set in a lovely, peaceful location, the house has beautiful views over the rolling hills. There are good walks nearby, either in rural countryside or on the beach, and plenty of attractive towns and interesting sites to visit. Millers, an excellent farm shop with café, is less than 10 minute’s away and there are a number of first-rate pubs in the vicinity. We will definitely visit again!"
