The Tower House, a listed building, provides self-catering holiday accommodation in a former toll house, built in the 1800s.

The cottage has recently been refurbished to a high standard with accommodation comprising lounge, kitchen/dining room, double bedroom, twin bedroom and bathroom.
The beautiful south facing garden provides a delightful setting in which to enjoy your holiday, with splendid views across open countryside.
