Escape to one of our quirky hideways, we have something for everyone, from an intriguing roundhouse to a Rapunzel-esque converted tower, a former observatory to delightful thatched cottages. As well as the striking architectural features and design that these properties clearly have, discover their former uses and absorb yourself in their stories cementing their place in the local and national history books.  

Our care of these cottages ensures that places can be enjoyed by future generations and the money you spend with us goes towards the upkeep of these buildings and the landscapes within which they lie.

In addition to the cottages featured we have plenty of other quirky and unusual cottages:
