Croftview - Accommodation
A long private drive through arable parkland takes you to Croftview where gates open onto a large courtyard; park up and let your holiday begin. Step into the hallway where straight ahead is one of two staircases to the first floor; off to the left is the games room with a pool table and air hockey, a big TV and beanbags to lounge on. Hang out there together, when it’s warm open the doors and bring the sunshine in.
Off the games room a short hallway leads to the spa hall, an amazing space where light floods in through floor to ceiling windows and chunky oak timbers soar to the roof. Centre place is the pool, at the far end there's a sunken hot tub and sauna, to the other, changing rooms, a shower and WC.
To the right of the hall is the commodious L-shaped living space where a long handcrafted dining table stands in front of bifold doors that open onto the garden. If you’re here to celebrate something special, book one of the caterers listed on our Extras page; they'll fix you up with a scrumptious feast, or cocktails and canapes - whatever you like.
In the corner is the stylish and well-equipped kitchen, leading round to the living room area, with a whopper of a sofa so you can all sit comfy for a movie night or that all-important match. In the colder months, come back from a walk in the woods, light the wood-burner and snuggle round. Further on is another hallway with the second staircase and a utility room; beyond this is Bedroom 1 (Robin), access friendly with an ensuite wet room.
At the top of the first staircase a long landing runs round the house; to the right, with ensuite shower rooms are Bedrooms 8 (Squirrel) and 9 (Pheasant). To the left is Bedroom 7 (Kingfisher) which has an ensuite bathroom with a bath and overhead shower, and Bedroom 6 (Hare) with its own shower room. Carry on along the landing to Bedrooms 2-5, all with ensuite shower rooms. With the exception of Bedroom 10 (Barn Owl), all bedrooms have zip and link beds (super king or twin); Bedroom 6 (Hare) can accommodate an extra guest bed.
The second staircase leads to Bedrooms 10 (Barn Owl) and 11 (Fox) on the top floor; both have ensuite bathrooms with a free-standing bath and a walk-in shower. Bedroom 10 has a super king bed, plus room for an extra guest bed and a double sofa bed, and Bedroom 11 has zip and link beds and an optional extra guest bed.
Take the first staircase to the top floor to Bedrooms 12 (Blue Tit) and 13 (Stag), which both have ensuite bathrooms with a free-standing bath and a walk-in shower. Bedroom 12 has room for an extra guest bed and a double sofa bed. At the top of both stairs on this floor there's a small kitchen.
Dine alfresco or enjoy evening cocktails on the terrace at the back of the house; have a game of outdoor table tennis, watch the little ones run around and climb on the play fort. Follow the path across the garden to Charlotte's Web, a rustic hut built into the hillside; gather round the firepit beneath the fairy lights; a huge window gives you wonderful views of hills and woods and open fields. Just beyond the garden chickens live happily in the orchard; collect eggs for breakfast, apples to make a pie for pudding. What's good is that the garden and front courtyard are secure and gated so you don’t need to worry about children or dogs escaping. Boxes ticked all round! Book your stay today!
Note: Extra beds carry a small additional charge and due to insurance restrictions only 4 can be used at any time.
