Stylish restored cottages with all the comforts you would expect of a luxury estate retreat. From romantic one bedroom escapes to rustic six bedrooms, there is a quintessentially English cottage getaway for couples and groups of any size.
Set amid meadows and woodlands, the estate is peppered with historically unique houses. Set on the edge of woodland is the one bedroom restored gamekeeper’s cottage, Hex Cottage, authentically electricity free and described as an ‘English gingerbread house’. Often booked as a mini-moon destination, this is a dreamy getaway for couples. The Gate Lodges offer further choice for couples, designed by neoclassical architect James Wyatt they reveal a hidden oasis under the original ‘pepper pot’ like gate house at the estate entrance. French doors open onto not one but two private terraces, tucked below the driveway and hidden by beautiful landscaping.
Meanwhile The Clockhouse & Barn, Garden Cottage and Moat Cottage offer room for larger groups or families, with the opportunity to combine properties and cottages as you please to accommodate for all your guests. The three-tiered bunk room with en suite bathroom in Garden Cottage provides space for up to 6, which in addition to the three double bedrooms featuring roll top baths and spacious kitchen is an ideal cottage for families with children. Moat Cottage offers a truly unique experience, set 15 minutes drive from the main estate, the six en suite bedroom cottage has it's own moat, boathouse and hot tub.
The Clockhouse, formerly the estate’s stables, comprises four light filled bedrooms of Georgian proportions, and can be rented in conjunction with the Barn, with which it discreetly interconnects to create a seven bedroom country cottage.
