About Us

High House was built in 1926 by recently married Mary Hallett to the design of her childhood home in Devon, and attached to a much older building, an 18th century dairy, which remained in use until the 1960s, when it was refashioned as a garage to house an increasing number of motor cars. In the 1980s new owners wanted more space for their growing family and the garage was incorporated into the house providing a number of utility rooms: pantry, larder and laundry, with hayloft above and extra bedrooms.


Lisa and Fred, who arrived in 2015, were keen to recapture the essence of the barn it once was, revealing ham stone pillars and old elm beams that lay beneath late 20th century modernity, adding windows and doors and a few 21st century comforts. Today the old pantry forms the kitchen of The Dairy, the laundry became a downstairs bedroom, whilst a staircase leads up to the old loft, now the master bedroom.


Although farmland and outbuildings were sold for redevelopment many years ago, and today the owners have full-time jobs, a hint of rural lifestyle lingers; sheep graze the field and hens roam freely in the garden. At dawn the cockerel might be just too far away to wake you.
