    • Historic Building 'The Fold' is part of a very ancient building and it derives part of its charm from its irregularities. There are steps between most of the rooms, the staircase leading to the loft bedroom is steep, and some doorways are low. Several windows are at floor level because they were once doorways for sheep - hence its name 'The Fold'! Sitting Out There is direct access from the living room to a terrace and from there to the steeply sloping apple orchard, where there is a further sitting area at a levelled spot, chosen for maximum sun. Towels / Linen / Cleaning Towels and bed-linen are included. Visitors are asked to leave The Fold clean and tidy, with all rubbish removed. Pets Pets are welcome. Please tell us if you wish to bring a dog or other animal. Dogs should follow the house rules and the country code.
