Both the Oast and Tannery have secluded private patio gardens overlooking a small stream on one side with a traditional village green on the other side. The Old Tannery was a former working tannery in the 17th century and has attractive beamed ceilings in the bedrooms. The Oast was originally built to dry hops used to brew beer. The Oast has an interesting wooden walkway out over the river.
