History of the Site
Once the site of the beloved 'Hare and Hounds' public house, The Gables emerges from a rich historical backdrop. The former 18th-century establishment, nestled within the Cruckton estate, was renowned for hosting local and national ploughing matches. Following a fire in 2011, the property underwent a transformation, culminating in the creation of an exclusive development featuring impressive barn conversions. Meticulous restoration efforts have resulted in a unique offering that seamlessly blends historic charm with modern comforts.
