The cheerful interiors are designed by Sarah Fortescue. It’s all light, bright and spacious with wood panelling, beautiful windows, a lovely kitchen for sociable cooking and a big wooden table so you can all sit comfortably together. You’ll also find fresh produce from the kitchen garden in season and you can order picnic hampers.
Even if the weather is bad you can relax – there are magazines, books, TV and games in the open-plan living room with comfy seating. In summer you’ll be eating outdoors in the courtyard or finding a good barbecue or picnic spot in the grounds. There are several different gardens to explore filled with camellias, rhododendrons and azaleas, a Georgian bath house and deer park.
Book a tennis court, discover the games room, strike out on endless walks in this pastoral idyll. Or just stay indoors and gaze at the views – Groom’s House looks over the churchyard.
