Head up the long winding drive through classic parkland to find this grand hall with nothing to disturb the sense of peace and privacy. The views south over the valley to hills and woodland beyond are glorious.
Catherine and Sandy have created a casual country house feel throughout: wood-burners dotted here and there, different sitting rooms to choose from, ballroom, big bedrooms (three en suite, one with a separate bathroom, and a double and twin sharing a Jack and Jill bathroom) with garden or valley views, a utility room/kitchen for wine storage and wet boots and dogs and a loft space with enormous TV and WiFi for teenagers.
Sit on the terrace for tea or a sundowner or two, wake in the morning for cereals, croissants and breads followed by a full cooked breakfast with produce from nearby. The only sounds you’ll hear are birdsong, lambs in the fields and the wind in the pines.
