Churchfield is a substantial family home with real history. This super Grade II Listed 5 bedroom home was once the Red Lion Inn where, we understand, George III stayed on his visit to Weymouth! More recently it has been a very successful holiday home and holiday let for the present owners.
From the moment you step through the substantial front door into the wide entrance hall, you can feel the history flowing through every flagstone and beam. The SNUG is within a curved panelled wall and is a perfect place for a children’s room or to get away from it all.
