Description from owner

Description

Come and visit a house full of history.

A stunning and quirky - meaning a little wonky at places - medieval timber framed home, originally build in 1468 for Sir Wyllyam Taylor, then Sheriff of London (later Lord Mayor of London). It is said the house had the proportions and ceiling heights (12 foot) of a 'fine London house'.

The building also has Jacobean wall paintings which were re-discovered in the 1960s.

For a long time it was used as an inn called 'The Griffin' until it became an antiques furniture sales room. The settings are certainly right for that.

However recently it turned back to be a home with a bit of 'character'!

The house today has on the ground floor a lovely kitchen diner which can seat up to 10 people, a big lounge with space for at least 6-10 people, another smaller lounge for at least 4 people. Both lounges offer TVs with free satellite reception and DVD players.

The smaller lounge has a sofa bed,

“Brilliant, very comfortable, quirky”

Reviewed 9 Jul 2016

Taylour house is wonderfully comfortable, well equipped and very interesting in historic terms. It is the perfect place to relax with family and friends, in a great location and excellent value for money. We loved the communal lounge, large family orientated kitchen and large relaxing bathroom!! Great place to stay.

Owner's reply: It was great having you and your family stay with us. You are welcome to come back at any time. Thank you!
