A spacious and characterful property, beautifully finished and set in the historic Chillesford Lodge Estate, located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
Backhouse is named after Peter Backhouse who was born on the estate in the 1920s and grew up to become a skilled carpenter. Peter constructed the North end of the barn, which now makes this property.
