Haberfield Hall is an impressive Victorian country house, with heaps of vibrancy and flair. Owner Isobel Trenouth has managed to transform the Hall, set in two acres of garden just outside Bristol, into a stunning venue which is now regularly used for location shoots but is also available for big groups to hire for holidays.
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.
