What was the old stone-built dairy can be found in the courtyard and stables area, along with the estate office. It’s deeply comfortable inside with bold, colourful interiors designed by Sarah Fortescue and plenty of space in the sitting room, a dining room with a hand-built oak table for long, convivial meals and a log-burner to keep you cosy. A smart TV, books and games for wet days and a boot room for dripping gear will keep everybody happy.
Bedrooms, with crisp linen and pretty fabrics have views over the courtyard or stunning countryside; bathrooms sport fluffy towels and Made for Life soaps and lotions. The kitchen bristles with pots and pans and an in-house chef can be booked. A Cornish cream tea greets you (remember, jam first!) along with fresh flowers. You can order produce from the kitchen garden and a filled picnic hamper for lazy days.
In spring the gardens explode with rhododendrons and azaleas and birdsong erupts.
