Lasclottes is a 19th century rural Farmhouse and Granary which has been traditionally renovated and luxuriously furnished with an eye for detail. The latest addition of the property is a Granary Annexe - a new downstairs suite.
Lasclottes is nestled within it's own 5 acres of land, with no near neighbours, Approached via a private lane, the land gently slopes down towards the river. Tranquility surrounds the property.
