Our houses are situated in the most wonderful locations covering the length and breadth of the land. Many of them are tucked out of the way opening up country walks and beautiful landscapes you may otherwise miss. They are great bases for exploring parts of the country you are not familiar with, and for getting to know more about your own locality if you are staying at a house close by. Some of our houses are in miles off the beaten track, some of them are in the heart of the town; all of them are in great locations.
