My husband and I, and our doggies, enjoyed the Coach House so much. We became friends with the owner who was very accomodating. He even loaned us his ornaments, so we could decorate our Christmas tree! The downstairs is very open and comfortable and was...More

About the neighbourhood
The coach house is a part of the original house built in 1795 on three-acres at the very heart of the historic village of South Britain with its 22 historic houses, a few from the 17th century. Across the street from the house is the Congregational Church founded in 1725 and, after a fire, rebuilt in 1835.

The Country Store is a block away with a veranda where neighbors congregate.

Within a short walk or jog along a farm road with... more
