The Experience

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.

Accommodation

Reviews

Sandy and Catherine have breathed new life into this stone-built house, which commands a magnificent position looking south to rolling hills and woodland. Come for the deepest peace, the darkest skies and a wealth of unspoilt countryside on every side. The house has been superbly renovated and offers all the latest comforts and space enough for all. Charming hosts complete the picture.

Introducing

Catherine Chapple Gill

Brynderwen Hall has been in Sandy's family since it was built in 1843. He's a semi-retired solicitor and he and Catherine moved back here and have given this imposing house a new lease of life, renovating throughout and opening their doors to B&B guests in 2019. They have three sons, and a small well-behaved dog.
