Come and visit a house full of history.

A stunning and quirky - meaning a little wonky at places - medieval timber framed home, originally build in 1468 for Sir Wyllyam Taylor, then Sheriff of London (later Lord Mayor of London). It is said the house had the proportions and ceiling heights (12 foot) of a 'fine London house'.

Amazing house, well decorated, very comfortable and fully equipped. The style of the house is very Harry Potter. Ideally situated: you have a waitrose across the house but you can easily go for a quiet walk in the countryside, far from any cars. We followed one of the recommended path to go to Hever castle. Kerstin has been a warm...
