If you want an intimate rural retreat, try our three brick and flint, cottages that are let out as one, together with the huge sitting room in the Village Hall. They sleep up to 23, with some en-suite and some shared bathrooms. You can light up the fire in winter or enjoy alfresco dining on the terrace by the pool in the summer (pool open May to September). We have 21 acres of gardens, river and lakes.
Arch Holiday Cottage (sleeps 4-6) has two big bedrooms with wash basins and large wardrobes. They can be set up as Super King Sized for single occupancy or a couple or as two twin beds. The huge double aspect sitting room has two top of the range large sofa beds that fold down to make proper beds. The bathroom has a bath with a shower above. It also has a spacious well-equipped kitchen, with plenty of storage, and all the kit you need. There is a kitchen in each cottage, but the Hall Cottage kitchen is usually used for the main catering kitchen.
The Pool house (sleeps 5) has an open plan mezzanine bedroom over the full height kitchen and sitting room. There are two single beds up here and another twin or super king sized bed. Downstairs there is a single bedroom and a timber clad bathroom with shower. French doors open into the covered pergola that sits at the head of the pool terrace with spectacular views of the formal garden and lake beyond. There is a large fridge/freezer gas oven and hob, dishwasher and all the kit you need for catering here too, if you want to serve food by the pool. There is outdoor covered seating for 23 to dine and relax together. The pool is open from May to September and is heated by our biomass boiler which burns locally sourced woodchip, so is 100% sustainable. You and the owners have exclusive use of the pool.
Hall Holiday Cottage (sleeps 6) has three bedrooms each set up with super king sized or twin beds. They all have great views and a chest of drawers, wardrobes and botanical art by Viscount Colville. The bathroom has a walk in power shower. The kitchen is fully equipped with a double oven, six hob range, dishwasher, large fridge/freezer to allow you to cook for your group. The window opens fully to pass food out into the garden for alfresco dining. It also opens into the Village Hall for feasting along big banqueting tables in front of the fire.
If you need we can fully cater for you or deliver ready cooked meals or ingredients for hassle free feasting. We can help you plan any aspect of your holiday, we have done a great many and now really know what works. We can also put you in touch with anyone on our hand picked list who can inspire, entertain and educate through a range of extra activities and games.
