Choose from three suites neatly converted from an old stable and tack room by David and a local builder. Each has their own entrance, comfortable seating, furniture made of reclaimed wood by Stuart Orrey, handmade pillow top mattresses and garden views. Ask for a cream tea on arrival, or homemade cake (Kelly is renowned for her fruit cake).
You take breakfast in the house, either at a gothic table in the dining room with a roaring fire in winter, or on the terrace in the sunshine. All is locally-sourced or homemade, including bread, jams, fruit compotes from the garden, sausages from the local butcher and eggs from their hens when they’re laying. With notice you can also have a home cooked supper or a packed lunch. Play croquet or boules, ask to cross a meadow to the wood with a glade and a firepit, or simply sit and read a book under a parasol.
Stroll down to pretty Kilvington Lakes for birdwatching, fishing or a picnic.
