Both the main house, The Old Post Office, and the two holiday cottages, which come fully, equipped - and with forward bookings, have all been recently and extensively renovated to a very high standard. The family home has it's own garden which is only accessible from the house and features a stream and recently completed bespoke summer house with power and a cast iron stove. There is a second landscaped garden within the enclosed space occupied by the holiday cottages that has been designed specifically for the use of guests.

It has a Westmorland tiled roof that has been recently completely renewed. The Folly is set over two floors and has been sympathetically renovated to provide the comforts of modern living without losing the historic atmosphere. It has double wooden doors leading into the hallway with stairs to the first floor bedrooms and access into the kitchen and living rooms. The living room, once the home of Thomas Charity Halliday's horse and carriage, has a feature window that has replaced the original barn doors.

A three-piece shower room is accessed from the kitchen. Both double bedrooms on the first floor have en-suite bathrooms. The Folly is well equipped and furnished to ensure a comfortable stay for up to six guests.
