comfortably relaxed

A very warm welcome awaits you at The Tall House, including tea and cake!

The Tall House is at least 200 years old, we can trace its occupancy back to the early 19th century. It was the first village Post Office.


The curved shape of the house is reflected inside, and the rooms contain many attractive features and bespoke fittings made by your host, who is a talented furniture maker. Rendered, and with a slate roof, a pretty English country style garden fronts the property which has views over the surrounding pastoral farmland. Your large room is recently and tastefully refurbished and has a comfortable seating area with a view of the surrounding farmland from the huge sash window. Attached to your room is a private en suite with a toilet and shower.  Coffee and tea making facilities are provided and a full English breakfast using local and organic ingredients.


Unfortunately we do not accept four legged friends.
