Gill Head is an exceptional Grade II Listed former farmhouse that
dates back to the 17th century. It has recently undergone complete
refurbishment to a very high standard. The original features of the
farmhouse have been preserved including a stone flagged floor

mullioned windows and a converted vaulted pottery, accessed
up stone steps. The property is beautifully appointed and tastefully

The downstairs shower room has been beautifully renovated with
a marble floor and power shower. The washbasin is within an oak
