The Folly

The Folly was built as a Fire Station in circa 1910.  A state of  the art  wooden  dray  with  a   steam  operated  water pump on the back pulled by two cart horses saved your house from  burning down!!

The cart horses were stabled through the archway and above is the slit window which housed the brass fire-bell which was rung to warn the populace of the danger.

All our rooms are central heated, double glazed and are en-suite.  LCD/DVD colour  television, radio/alarm clock and hospitality tray.
