Kingshay Barton - Accommodation
Luxury togetherness awaits you at Kingshay Barton. This beautiful holiday house sleeps 20 in 10 ensuite bedrooms, with 3 extra guest beds for children aged 8 years and under available at an extra charge each. With large private grounds, a games room, cinema room, and a spa hall that has a pool, hot tub and sauna, this is a fantastic choice for large family holidays in the UK.
Step into the wide hallway and straight ahead are the stairs. To the right is the games room where you can play pool or table tennis and catch the latest big match. Up a short flight of stairs is Kingshay Odeon - a mini cinema with tiered seating for 18 and sumptuous floor cushions to lounge on; it has air con, interval lights, surround sound and an enormous screen. Also off the games room is the snug, a quiet room overlooking the courtyard. A lockable door leads from the games room through a lobby to the spa hall; centre place is the pool, to one end there's a sunken hot tub and a sauna.
Upstairs are Bedrooms 1-3, all with ensuite shower rooms. Bedroom 1 (Purtington) can accommodate an extra guest bed at additional charge; Bedroom 2 (Downclose) and Bedroom 3 (Broadstone) both sleep 2. The bedrooms at Kingshay Barton are named after features in the local landscape - hamlets, fields, woods and farms on the Coombe Farm Estate. Beds are zip and link so can be super kings or twins.
Left of the entrance hall is a vast open-plan living space. There are plush velvet sofas and chairs and to one side is a long bespoke dining table. At the far end of the room the very swish kitchen has everything you need to make catering for a large group stress free. Light floods in through floor to ceiling windows, French doors open onto the garden; it's a wonderful room that sets the scene perfectly for happy family celebrations. Make it extra special by hiring private caterers to come and create a feast for you (see Extras).
Off the kitchen is a utility room and steps down to a hallway with access to the courtyard - handy for when you've been for a romp across the field with the dog. Off the hall are Bedrooms 4-6, all sleeping 2; Bedrooms 4 and 6 (Coombe and Moultons) have ensuite bathrooms with a bath, TV and separate shower; Bedroom 5 (Wayford) has an ensuite wet room. Bedrooms 5 and 6 also have room for an optional extra guest bed (charged).
Bedrooms 7-10 are in the attached former stables, accessed from the courtyard. One door takes you to a lobby with Bedrooms 7 and 8 (Venley and Warren) to either side, another door leads to another lobby and to Bedrooms 9 and 10 (St Rayn and Foxwell); all have ensuite shower rooms.
At the back of the house there's a big patio with outdoor furniture; step onto the lawn and stroll around pathways to a mini henge, and the rustic BBQ bothy. Spend balmy summers evenings beneath the twinkly lights; if it’s chilly close the doors and windows, or put the heaters on.
The 2 acre grounds are a dream, with trees all around, flowers tumbling onto the grass, and plenty of room to run around. A gate leads down to a stream, to the other side of the house a big orchard is edged by a high stone wall where another stream babbles merrily along; in spring time the apple trees are frothy with blossom. Special memories will be made at Kingshay Barton. Book your stay today!
