Owners Comments

“The versatility of Mayfield is exceptional both inside and out. The reception rooms are very adaptable and the flexibility of the formal gardens and paddocks offer something for the equestrian, gardener and avid entertainer. We love the privacy and beautiful views afforded by Mayfield yet we are only a few minutes' walk from the village centre.”
