once a hen house

This unique and contemporary holiday let really did start out as a hen house!  Our former chicken shed is now light and spacious and the perfect bolt hole in which to work, rest and play.

The accommodation is full of character, a detached property with a simple, contemporary style.  Surrounded by vineyards, orchards and fields of wild daffodils, there is much to do and see in this beautiful part of the country.

A mere two and half hours from London, Once a Hen House is set in a rural environment, tucked away for a peaceful, relaxing break, yet an ideal location to explore all that the surrounding counties have to offer.

Our passion is to provide Hen House guests with the ultimate hideaway.  A comfortable and cosy home from home stay with lots of luxuries, and guests are assured of a warm welcome!
