The kitchen and dining space are on the ground floor and have split levels.

The dining area is on the ground floor and has exposed stone walls, a large dining table and seating for 6 people.

The kitchen is accessed by 5 steps and is on the upper ground level. The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking at home and from here there is access to a pretty conservatory.

The living room is on the ground floor and has comfortable seating for 6 people. Like the dining space, this room is full of character with exposed stone walls and beamed ceilings.

The conservatory is reached via 3 steps from the kitchen. The area is flooded with light with large windows and a small border with lemon trees. This space has wicker furniture to relax on and is a lovely place to sit and take afternoon tea or read a book.


There are two lovely terraces to dine and relax al fresco. The first is on the ground level and there is a table and chairs for dining out. Stone steps (33 in total) lead up to the upper level garden and terrace where you will find an area with some shade plus a BBQ and garden furniture.

Both terraces face South West and have wonderful views over the Medieval towers and surrounding countryside.

The property is nestled into the hillside.

A free car park used by the residents of the historic centre is approximately 300 metres away.

From the car park the access to the property is via a cobbled lane, a small ramp (or 5 steps) then a further 5 stone steps, followed by approximately 50 metres of cobbled lane. There are then 12 stone steps up to the lane where the house is situated and then 7 steps to the front door.

There are many routes to access the house both from the car park and the village centre, some have less steps than the above mentioned route to the car park, however on arrival the above route offers the most direct access.

We do not recommend this property for anyone having difficulty negotiating stairs.
