Our Story

It was love at first sight! When we first set eyes on Flaxfield House we just knew it was the one. After nearly a year and a half of negotiations, we finally got the keys!

We are Steve and Emma, the very fortunate owners of Flaxfield House. We live here along with our two young sons, and this is just a little about us and the property which we call home.

Although once a much loved family home and business, the house and grounds had fallen into a state of disrepair, and the three holiday homes were very tired indeed.

Steve is not one to hang about, and so very quickly we had completely refurbished not only the main house, but also Butler's Rest Cottage, The Hayloft and The Goat Shed.

The dream was always to create a haven for ourselves, and also a santuary for guests, looking to escape from it all and enjoy forest life. We transformed all three existing holiday homes from the ordinary, to the extraordinary!

With Steve's passion for renovation and Emma's for interior design, we like to think we have created something really special, and a little different.
