Charcoal House Reviews

The house has a lot of character and is very well appointed. We really appreciated the styling and the features and it was cool watching all the baby birds in the garden from the kitchen.

Access was very easy and it was great to be able to arrive at our leisure without the need to meet someone to hand over keys. It worked really well and the information inside is very comprehensive to assist finding things to do.

The biscuits were very welcome.

Really recommend the walk to the Red Lion pub where the landlord and staff are really friendly and helpful and have good beers and good pub food. I would like to have that pub at the end of my street.

Would definitely recommend if you’re looking for a gorgeous and spacious house and lots of tranquillity in a beautiful part of the UK. – Tim Eady
