This stylish country house well secluded within acres of sympathetically landscaped grounds, with a classic interior that further enhances the many original features, creating the perfect back drop for any special occasion.

This lovely holiday home has all the facilities of a smart hotel – without the other guests to share them with. Ideal for a multi-generational group, with a variety of entertainment on offer, the house is set in pretty gardens with plenty of space for everyone to relax and enjoy spending time together.

There's a homely feel as you step into the main house through the entrance hall, with an understated country house decor coupled with original features like a grand fireplace and exposed beams in the main lounge. Older kids will be pleased to see an iMac in the second lounge, as well as another open fire and a stack of board games too. Gather at the chunky pine table in the farmhouse kitchen to catch up, then send the kids out to explore the extensive grounds while you prepare dinner on the AGA. Outside, they'll be in heaven as they begin planning a busy schedule of football and tennis tournaments, discover the trampoline and roam the landscaped lawns. And that's all before they come upon the heated indoor pool and detached games barn with pool table, table football and spin bikes, full-sized table tennis and a stylish lounge area boasting a huge wall-mounted TV. With a utility room on hand too with both washer and dryer, there's no need for rain to stop play. Upstairs, the stylish rooms are arranged over two floors, with the option of a twin or king-size set-up in three of the six bedrooms, and the four bathrooms will avoid any family conflicts in the mornings.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

It's 5 miles to Lacock Abbey, a National Trust property which also has a photography museum and art gallery on-site. The pretty city of Bath is 10 miles away, with excellent shopping and restaurants as well as lovely waterside walks, and of course the famous Roman Baths themselves. Bundle everyone into the car and visit Avebury, 20 miles away, for a great day out catering for all ages with the historic stone circle, plus a family-friendly manor house restored in five different styles from Tudor to the 20th century where visitors are encouraged to touch and interact with the furnishings. Longleat Safari Park in Warminster is also just 20 miles from the house.

We filled this beautiful house with family and friends, and despite poor weather everyone had a fabulous time, especially in the swimming pool. The house was so cosy, and the kitchen was our main focus, which was well equipped, and plenty of room. Michelle looked after us well, and sent an electrician immediately when the smoke alarm played up.
