Hire the House
Houchins is a Grade 2* listed farmhouse dating back to the 15th century that offers the perfect setting for a family gathering, special celebration or cosy weekend away. The accommodation is extremely comfortable and available for 14 people in the main house and an additional two in the romantic cartlodge adjoining the farmhouse. It is privately owned and set in beautiful landscaped grounds of 2 acres which are in turn surrounded by its own rolling farmland. The house has been sympathetically restored to the highest standards and decorated with carefully sourced local antiques. There is a large oak panelled drawing room with open fireplace, large well equipped farmhouse kitchen and formal dining room comfortably accommodating 16 people.
