Allen's Farm Oast nestles in an area of outstanding natural beauty with far reaching views over fields and trees.The Oast has been converted into a luxurious four bedroomed house using exceptionally high quality materials and finished to a supremely high standard. It provides very spacious and comfortable accommodation for eight. Authentic bricks and beams have been preserved to retain the innate character of the lovely old building but the latest materials have been used where appropriate to enhance the comfort and bring a sense of contemporary style to the living arrangements.
