"Bed too nice to get up, garden too nice to go out, weather just right!! It's a long way home - maybe we'll stay! Thanks for a great week. Steve & Terry Warren, Dover.

Besides leading a simple but comfortably self-sufficient existence from the fruits of their land, the Shakers came to be known for their crafts and furniture. Shaker design, with its clean practical lines, is a simple yet happy marriage of form and function.

The self contained annexe adjoining the main house has been finished with the discerning guest's comfort and practicality in mind. The spacious lounge/bedroom has a huge ancient inglenook fireplace with cloam oven and woodburner under a large oak bresumer. The handmade bed in the shaker style was once part of a Victorian gentleman's outfitter's shop counter! French windows open south onto a slate flagstoned veranda - A wonderful place to sit for alfresco meals and enjoy the babbling brook and birdsong from the halfacre garden.
