Owner's comments

Set up high with the most breathtaking views. The sunsets are magical and best enjoyed from the bay window in the living room. In the mornings, we hear the birds singing. The whole house is flooded with light. There is a great sense of community at Stone Manor and our neighbours are quiet, friendly and we have all looked out for each other, especially during lockdown. In late spring/summer, we have enjoyed having a glass of wine and food outdoors and in the grounds, there is a brick BBQ that anyone can use and plenty of space so it never feels crowded. There is always lots of parking space for guests, which is a bonus. A lovely walk into town feels so easy and enjoyable
