Little Canwood House - Long View Cottages
With glorious views over rural farmland, Little Canwood House is a spacious self-catering holiday cottage sleeping eight people. Traditional yet modern, its four bedrooms, fully fenced garden and a games room make it a popular choice with families.
The Woodhouse is something different: A showhome that you can stay in, operated by Oakwrights, a company that specialises in bespoke oak frame buildings. As you'd expect, the house is beautiful, but also practical and comfortable.
