First built in 1937 as a Cricket Pavilion to commemorate the coronation of King George VI & Queen Elizabeth. It was later home to Sisters of the Community of St Francis and rebuilt in 2021 after being decimated by an oak tree in 2018.

Travel cot/camp bed available on request for couples with children.

The kitchen includes electric hob, combination oven/grill, fridge, kettle, toaster, Nespresso coffee machine, dishwasher, washing machine & dryer.

There is a spacious garden to the rear of the Hermitage overlooking a private wildflower meadow which flowers beautifully from Spring to Summer.

Private parking & bike racks with wash station for cyclists are also available on site. No detail has been overlooked to ensure this is a perfect holiday home for your countryside break.
