History of The Wilderness;
Set in large private gardens "The Wilderness" dates from 1640 and was originally a pair of farm cottages believed to belong to the estate of Heywood House nearby. The house features original oak beams and the ceilings are low in many places but this all just adds to the charm ! The original cottages have been carefully extended over the years to provide very spacious and varied accommodation. There are 2 double bedrooms, and 6 twins (some convert to doubles) including a large family room having 2 single beds with guest beds under.
There is ample private parking in the grounds.
