Made for entertaining
Looking for a place where you can bring a group together in a house that feels like your own? Somewhere elegant and cared for that still has that relaxed, unstuffy feel of home, where you can unwind, laugh and get immersed in great conversation?
Abbotstone Farm House is an excellent place to escape. Not only has it got eight double bedrooms – sleeping 16 guests – and some very generous social space (including a big kitchen with an Aga and three colourfully furnished living areas with working fireplaces), it also has additional room for entertaining in the adjacent Abbotstone Barn and the surrounding gardens and grounds.
The ample living space has tremendous charm with painted rooms of rich colours, extensive well stocked gardens, terraces and spring fed ponds with plenty of places for lounging and laughing, making it a unique place to be with either family, friends or colleagues.
Optional on–site catering from resident cook Becka Cooper the formality of her catering which can be dialled up or down for individual meals, as required, providing anything from Saturday night dinner for the family served in the farmhouse to breakfast for 30 in the barn.
In the summer, you’ll have access to your own private swimming pool and tennis court, while winter afternoons may be spent playing games by the fire. The house comes stocked with drawers full of games and puzzles and why not play a round of ping pong in the barn.
There’s a great walk for every season (picnics and pub stops optional) and there’s also opportunities to arrange vineyard tours, wine tastings, horse riding, fishing and clay pigeon shooting without leaving the estate. If your stay is in June or July, you could even catch world-class opera live at The Grange Festival.
