A peaceful Georgian delight with acres of parkland to wander. Charles and Linda are charming hosts, rooms are warm, breakfasts wonderful

Read guest comments

Linda has softened this rambling 1790 house; it has an upbeat elegance. The rooms are sunny and sparkling with beds and windows dressed in delicate fabrics in fine contrast to solid antique pieces. One condition of Linda’s moving to her husband Charles’s family home was that she should be warm! She is, and you will be, too. An excellent breakfast sets you up to walk the grounds and explore the garden where Charles’s mother Mary, 85, oversees all, and can often be seen cutting grass on her tractor. Charles and his son-in-law Adam, a trainee arborist, maintain the mature trees and shrubs. There are 70 acres of woods, lawns and gardens, including a two-acre walled garden. You will find a folly, ice house, waterfall, ha-ha, a lake with an island... and a quarter mile of daffodils. From the South Lawn with its sculptural trees, a drive encourages a stroll towards a lily pond, and an avenue of pleached limes. There are climbing roses against the boundary wall, a fragrant, paved garden created by Penelope Hobhouse, and some unusual trees including a catalpa and a tulip tree. Come for teas on the lawn and perfect peace.

"My wife and I stayed the nights of 20th & 21st November, as a birthday present to visit ss Great Britain. The house and welcome are all that you say. Charles and Linda went out of their way to route us to Bristol, and made us feel members of their family. Highly recommended and will be back."

"A beautiful house that felt like home to us from the start. Very comfortable and welcoming. Excellent breakfast after an amazingly comfortable night's sleep. In the morning it was raining and so Linda and Charles were veru helpful with recommendations on how to spend the day. Plan to return. The autumn leaves were stunning and we would like to Harptree in the spring."
