This large traditional farmhouse can accommodate up to 18 guests across ten bedrooms, making this the perfect destination for family gatherings or reunions with friends. With 5 acres of grounds, including a children's play area, there is plenty of space for al fresco dining and garden games. Host a private party in the barn or soak under the stars in the wood-fired hot tub.

There’s a handy shower room on the ground floor. Heading upstairs, you will find four indulgent king-size bedrooms, one with en-suite bathroom. There is also a fabulous bathroom with clawfoot bath on this level. A further five en-suite bedrooms can be found in the detached stable block, four of which are made up of living rooms with bedrooms on a mezzanine above. The farmhouse is situated within 5 acres which you are free to roam. An outdoor seating area is great for sociable meals if you wish to dine outside. Toast marshmallows around the fire pit area, soak your limbs in the wood-fired hot tub and let off steam in the games room within the red brick barn.

We had a fabulous weekend stay at the Hay House Retreat. We were a big party and there were plenty of large pans and dishes to use for catering. The view from the garden was superb, with lots of outdoor seating and tables. The beds and pillows were comfortable and the house was clean and had a lovely cosy feel to it. I wouldn't hesitate to book it Read moreagain for a special occasion. Hide

A magical place. We kept thinking we were in France. So much space inside and out. Incredibly well appointed and so welcoming. Stargazing, wonderful outdoor meals overlooking the valley and watching the eletrical storms with no thunder at night are only a few of the incredible memories we have from celebrating our parents' 50th wedding anniversary.Read more A very special place indeed.
