We are within the private grounds of Camfield Place. Transport is essential as there is not any public transport within walking distance. This is a dog walkers paradise, well behaved pets are welcome .If your party is for more than three people, I can accommodate the extra guests in our cottage, on ROOM ONLY basis. This enables a larger family to still all be together, apart from the sleeping facilities.
