We have seen it as a privilege to be the caretakers of Slapestones for the past six years. The house is over 250 years old and is full of character. It remains cool on hot summer days and in the winter a roaring fire in the log/coal burner keeps the house cosy. It is a bright and cheerful house with a relaxing ambience. The garden is beautiful and enjoys the sun from morning until evening, there are many places to sit which suit the differing moods of the individual. The trees at the bottom of the garden rustle with the wind and have a calming effect when lazing around in the garden. Living within the farming community, we have occasional visitors in the form of Pheasant and Muntjac and during the harvest season it is great to watch the farmers busy reaping the rewards of their work.
