Within the Georgian buliding itself, we have six double rooms. These are all the original bedrooms dating from or before 1797. They vary in size and are priced accordingly.
Number Three and Number Four sit overlooking the sweeping drive at the front of the house, with handsome original sash windows surrounded by ivy and original shutters to keep the heat in when it turns chilly. Number Three has a beautiful original fireplace and overlooks the main entrance porch, Number Four is right in the centre of the frontage of the house, which was rebuilt in 1797.
Number Six has high ceilings, original 18th century sash windows looking out onto the spread of an ancient horse chestnut tree. It was originally build as the dressing room for Mr and Mrs Birbeck, and its en-suite bathroom was the first purpose-made bathroom in the house, built in 1895. Number Six can be made up as a twin room or a Super King-sized double.
Number Seven is at the heart of The Grove, just up the first flight of stairs – always first in for breakfast! This is our smallest double, and a firm favourite with regular guests.
Number Eight is our most recently converted room. Stunning and generously sized, it has many original features including the Georgian fireplace. It has been knocked through to another former bedroom, which has entered a new beginning as a beautiful bathroom complete with freestanding roll top bath and shower. The view is nothing to write home about, but it is more of a suite than a room, if we’re honest.
Refurbished in 2015, Number Nine is an old family favourite featuring flexible zip-link beds that can be either two singles or a Super King-sized double. It has a fantastic shower-room, and an easy route down the stairs to dinner!
Number Ten is in the oldest part of the house, has a King-sized bed and window-seat. This was one of the original two up, two down bedrooms before the house was extended and rebuilt. It is not known how old this part of the house is.
Number Eleven with its pretty leaded windows is high up in the back of the house – a great room for plenty of peace and quiet. Number Eleven was the housekeeper’s room for many years, and has views of one of our wonderful copper beech trees.
