According to Alastair, this 1800s farmhouse has been transformed into 'a handsome B&B with a modern vibe. Animal skins and displays of flowers gleam in the mirrored light of chandeliers; dark red walls flicker in firelight. Sink into Siberian goose down, wake to waterfall showers and Molton Brown treats. Breakfast bacon and eggs are farmyard fresh while port rounds off hearty British meals.' It's also an ideal spot for walkers.
