Garden Studio Flat
Formed from a ground floor wing of the manor house, access is gained either through the main hallway of the manor or by the door leading into the garden from the kitchen, where there is a table and chairs for eating out.
There is a 6ft double bed that can be made into twin beds. Honeysuckle chintz and antiques decorate the main open plan studio style bedroom with sitting room at one end.
The wetroom has a shower, WC, bidet and his and hers basins. (A disabled shower chair and loo seat/surround are available).
The kitchen has a table that can seat four, with french windows leading directly to the pool and garden. There is a table and chairs for outdoor meals.
Very popular with honeymooners. Parking in front of the Manor.
THE ESTATE GROUNDS
The gardens are beautiful. There are many specimen trees and plants and deep borders that change with the seasons. The lake is home to swans, heron, ducks, geese and other waterfowl. There is a dovecote and a Doomsday watermill dating from 1086. The village church, with its ancient graveyard, is next door.
The outdoor pool, heated in July and August, is open during daylight hours with a quiet time set aside each mid-day for elderly or "shy" guests to enjoy the pool in relative quiet. There is an all-weather tennis court, croquet, table tennis and a billiard room (adults only, please).
Children are warmly welcomed here. Special occasions are given special attention. Mid-week cleaning and baby sitting can be arranged with advance notice at an additional charge. The local pub will cater meals for you with advance notice. Sorry, dogs are not allowed. Smoking is not allowed in the cottages and non-smoking guests are preferred.
This is a beautiful property for a wedding. You can have a marquee by the lake. Guests can stroll amid the 15 acres of National Garden Scheme gardens. You can use your own florist, marquee people, photographers and caterers or the owners will provide this for you. For weddings, you have to take all five B&B rooms in the main house plus the Coach House, Courtyard Cottage and Stables. These are all close together. Watermill and the Studio Flat can be booked also, of course. There is plenty of parking. Please contact us for more information.
