An amazing property, in a perfect location!
What a find! We had a 4 day break for two at Hampden House and we wished we had booked longer. The location was just perfect. Right on the edge of town, in a private location right on the river. We enjoyed most of our hours laying on the deck chairs reading under the beautiful trees, in between swimming in the pool. The house has an amazing family history from the 19th Century and still has all the original fittings. Karen the owner was very helpful and left treats for arrival. We enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it.
Warm inviting country cottage

Will be back there again.
