The Self Catering Manor House
The Manor is set in 6 acres of grounds, including its own private woodland and quarry. The interior boasts many original period features and until recently renovated had remained largely untouched for the past 100 years.
The accommodation is spacious and fully restored to its former glory, with marble fireplaces and original servants bells in every room. There are open fireplaces that can be used in several of the downstairs rooms: lounge, drawing room, and dining room.
The Drawing Room leads directly to the garden and is a wonderful place to read quietly whilst you watch children playing outside, or to contemplate whilst watching nature at its best.
The Lounge has splendid views over the garden through a wonderful Bay Window. The floor is original stripped pine and there is a large TV & DVD. Wireless internet access is available from the lounge, drawing room and inner hallway.
The Dining Room is huge, seating 30 people quite comfortably; a window seat enables you sit in the warm sunshine to look through the huge windows across the fields. There is a piano and a pianola - only usually seen in Westerns - a piano that can play itself !
The Games Room has a colonial feel, with oak panelling and pool table.
The large Kitchen has an integrated fridge/freezer, microwave, coffee maker and double oven & hob and washing machine. There is an Aga, which gives the room a cosy feel. The original servant bells can be seen here too.
