Discovered the Hamlet whilst members of the National Trust and what a lovely little find. Very quaint and worth the visit. A short walk takes you up to Blaise Castle and the grounds there are fantastic for dog walking.

Never heard much about this hamlet, but it really is like traveling in time. Went on a school holiday weekend at near dusk and even then it was empty. A must see

Popped by recently to show visiting friends this charming hamlet. I have always known it to be there, as I used to know friends who used to live in one of the cottages. Whenever I return, I am always amazed by how tranquil and secluded it feels. You can walk around the green to admire the cottages, but be respectful... More

A charming little enclave of beautiful little cottages, each individual, wonderfully varied and wonderfully designed. Well worth the detor if you are at the Blaise Castle Estate, as they are only a few yards from the main house.

Being a tourist involves amongst other attributes, the ability to observe, snoop or downright stare at any public or private scenarios. Ethical comforts or lack thereof, matter to some but in the "passing-through" phase of meandering through private areas is cool by me. A lovely lady stopped to watch us looking at her cottage and approached us with a conviviality... More

A lovely hamlet of simple cottages, worth a visit if you are near Blaise. Don't forget the cottages are lived in though.
