General Info

Home to the owner’s ancestors for more than 300 years, this is a house with a heart. The furniture and paintings reflect the family’s history, the bookcase in the drawing room was carved by a relation, the wheel supports in the library were taken from the owner’s grandfather’s ship and the 5,000 books have been collected by successive generations since the late 17th century. In short, the house is filled with stories. With its informal, friendly atmosphere, a dedicated and caring team of staff, and a gorgeous village location, there isn’t much not to love about this place. Clearly Visit Britain, who have given it a 5 star rating and a Gold Award for Outstanding Quality of Accommodation and Service, agrees. Whether you’re here for a celebration, a reunion, a corporate event or a peaceful retreat, you’re sure to enjoy the beautifully decorated bedrooms, the exceptional service, and the abundance of activities both on and off site.
