Beautiful Warwickshire manor house, set within 19 acres of private grounds, ideal for a gathering with family or friends.

This incredible five-star 17th-century manor house is the perfect place for big gatherings and weekend parties, sleeping 10 over six bedrooms. It's also the ideal choice for you if you've ever wanted to pretend you're a lord or lady of the manor, with a heated indoor swimming pool and 19 acres of private grounds to explore, including a boating lake, tennis court and orchard. The house is in a sleepy hamlet near Leamington Spa, giving you easy access to days out exploring all the Cotswolds have to offer before retreating back to your own private paradise.

Step inside the house and the first thing you'll appreciate is the character. You'll find exposed wooden beams, wooden window frames, large stone fireplaces and a real feeling of history at every turn. But despite its age, this house is beautifully turned out for modern living. You'll find a large lounge with room for everyone to relax and stretch out. If you want more living space, there's a separate barn which could make a perfect late-night gathering place. You'll love the traditional manor house kitchen, complete with an Aga, double butler's sink and lots of room to cook together. Alternatively, catering can be arranged. There's a breakfast table too for easy mornings. In the evening, you can gather in the spacious dining room with its banqueting table and open fire. There are four bedrooms in the main house, including an impressive master with its own dressing room and an en-suite bathroom. Two more bedrooms are to be found in the tower across the courtyard. You could easily spend days just pottering around the grounds. There is a lovely al fresco dining area with a BBQ, as well as an outdoor dining terrace at the barn. There is an ornamental boating lake complete with stone hippos, a rose garden and a bluebell wood. Whatever your country house fantasies, you're sure to find them here.

Spacious and characterful, with great facilities. Other than a Sunday lunch walk and a trip into Stratford for part of the group, we didn't leave the house! Lots of tennis, messing about in the pool and relaxing in front of a roaring fire. Jo and Darren very helpful. Only downside was the inconsistent wi-fi, available only in one room and even thenRead more not all devices picked up the signal (although for some of us that was a bonus!) Hide

Fantastic place for large groups, we were a party of seven so very roomy for us. Pool and sauna enjoyed by all. Beautiful setting and nice walks. Helpful caretakers Jo and Darren. Exceptional. We want to book again next year.

Beautiful Farm House set in lovely grounds. The indoor pool and sauna was a great hit with the children! Just beware if you are 6ft or over, the beams and doorways are very low!!!

Reviewed by Sarah, 17th August 2018

The cottage is a very relaxed and easy place to stay as long as you want to completely switch off from the rest of the word and get organised for your stay ahead of time as a small grocery store and pub is a car ride away.
