The courtyard of listed stables has been transformed and newly refurbished to create these four very comfortable, individually styled cottages.

The grounds include an area of woodland for visitors' use and a paddock with seating and barbecue tables, football and volleyball nets, a children's play area with swings, slide and climbing frame. Horse riding, clay pigeon shooting and golf are available nearby. At Carsington Water, virtually adjoining the property, sailing, windsurfing, canoeing and fishing can be enjoyed.
