Lamper Head is a unique property designed and built in 1991 by Roderick James. The house comprises two wooden barns at right angles, built of oak and Douglas fir; the wood creates wonderful warmth while large windows ensure lots of natural light and far-reaching views.

Inside the accommodation is finished to an exceptional standard and includes the 35ft living/dining room, a fine kitchen/breakfast room and boot room, as well as the impressive principal bedroom suite, the guest suite and five further bedrooms, plus two shower rooms and the bathroom. An indoor swimming pool adds to the appeal.

Outside are decked terraces and landscaped gardens including young woodland and a stone-built barbecue area. The house has been running as a business which is very successfully let with considerable potential income.
