Frankleigh House is 6 families, each with own space, and sharing community and resources: garden kitchen,7 acres of grounds, including parkland, open air swimming pool, rose garden, front lawn, beech tree field, orchard, bees, allotments and a newly palnted forest garden in our large front field.  We live in a way that is as spacious or as sociable as you want it to be. Our ethos is one of collaboration. We equally share the freehold of this place.  We’re open to visitors through the www.helpx.net which operates on a skills for stay basis.
