New for 2021! A brand new fully self-contained extension with 3 double bedrooms and additional double sofa bed in living room, kitchenette and shared laundry facilities.
Old Stables was built in 1800 as part of the Belluton Grange Estate. With the sale of the Estate in the late 20th century, it was converted into a highly desirable residence with extensive grounds and stabling for three ponies. It still retains many Georgian features including a well and a rare Georgian Horse Wash, utilizing a natural spring in the grounds.
Two hundred years ago, it must have been quite a sight, with a band of returning huntsmen, steeds spattered by Chew Valley red mud, being led by grooms down into the Horse Wash; aristocrats strolling across the lawns to the Grange, lackeys carrying game to the kitchens !
