Step inside, and a Gothic entrance porch and reception hall leads into large, airy rooms with high ceilings, full length bay windows and oceans of light. The décor throughout is informal and relaxed, the white walls and dark and white wood strip and parquet floors offset by splashes of colour, either from furniture (the blue Smeg fridge, for example), eclectic works of art or bold arrangements of flowers.
The gardens are a children's paradise (football pitch, trampoline, climbing frame etc). There's also a gazebo, roofed in grass and scattered with comfy Moroccan cushions, and a large pool with a huge tiled seating area.
The Hall sleeps 22. A refurbished cottage next door sleeps seven and is available to hire alongside the main house. The entire property therefore sleeps up to 29.
The south-facing kitchen is sunny and well-equipped, with an Aga at one end and a large area of comfy seating around an open fire at the other. The view looks out over open fields and wooded hills. One wall is a patchwork of funky wallpaper, and the sofas are sink-into inviting, in either leathers or fabrics. The middle of the room accommodates a large dining table which seats 16 comfortably, behind which a further six can be seated at the breakfast bar.
There are eight, generous double bedrooms. Six have en-suite bath or shower rooms and one has a basin. Again, they are predominantly white and wonderfully original. The double bed/twin room would work best as a 'children's dormitory' and one of the doubles with 2 singles in the same room is the newly converted pool room, which adjoins, but has a separate entrance from the main house, and is en-suite.
In the garden are a football pitch and good-sized goals, a climbing frame with four children's swings, great trees to climb, a basket ball net, a trampoline and plenty of hard surface for bike riding, scooting, rollerblading etc. The pool, surrounded by easy loungers, is heated throughout the summer.
These include a washing machine, tumbler drier, wood for the fires, an extra fridge for drink (besides the big main fridge and freezer), and all bed linen and towels.
Entertainment includes a flat screen TV with Sky Plus, a DVD player in the kitchen (the master bedroom also has both these), internet access and a CD player in the kitchen. There’s plenty of off-street parking.
