Luntley Court Accommodation
When you arrive at Luntley Court, look up at this lovely old manor house with its Tudor style exterior. Isn’t it wonderful? And it’s all yours, if only for a while. Go through the gates at the side of the house and in through the door to the utility room where you can leave your muddy boots and coats after a walk in the Herefordshire countryside. In the corner of the room stairs lead to the snug/TV room; separate from the rest of the house, this is a good place to escape to for a quiet read or to catch up on your favourite soap.
Step up from the utility room to the large kitchen, well equipped with a 4 oven Aga as well as a separate cooker and hob. Whoever’s doing the cooking won’t be left out; there’s a central island with stools, and to one end of the room, comfy seating, so you can all gather together happily.
Go through to the dining room, with a galleried landing up above; to one end French doors open onto the garden, in the middle there’s a long wooden table – a fantastic manorial setting for any celebration feast. A long hallway with rich oak panelled walls and flagstone floors runs almost the entire length of Luntley Court; an enormous front door (over 400 years old!) opens to a porch where built-in benches offer a place to sit, out of the hot summer sun.
You’ll soon notice the quirkiness of the house, how things aren’t entirely uniform, the walls and floors are slightly askew; there are charming historic features - leaded windows, centuries old timbers and huge roof trusses, all adding to the charm.
Next to the dining room is the living room where you can gather to watch a film or play games. A big fireplace (not in use) with an ornate surround adds to the character, a large window gives an outlook over the tree lined garden. Next door is the games room where there's a traditional slate bed snooker table.
Luntley Court has two staircases to the first floor, both taking you to the long part galleried landing; one is in the corner of the dining room, the other is just off the living room. Upstairs, Bedroom 1 is on a slightly lower level than the rest of the bedrooms; it’s a large room that sleeps 4 and has an ensuite bathroom with a free-standing bath and separate shower.
Step up to the main landing and the gallery that overlooks the dining room; off this are Bedrooms 2-4 (see Floorplans). Bedroom 2 sleeps 4 and has a shower room just across the landing; Bedroom 3 sleeps 2 and is right opposite a bathroom with a bath and separate shower. Bedroom 4 is a suite with two interconnecting rooms that each sleep 2, and an ensuite bathroom. On this floor all beds are zip and link (super king or twin); the bedrooms that sleep 4 make a great set up for families or for older children/friends sharing.
Next to Bedroom 2 stairs rise to the second floor where up in the eaves of the house with twin beds are Bedrooms 5 and 6.
The private garden is at the back of the house; to the side there are views across the fields and of the historic dovecote. On the terrace there’s a barbecue, outdoor furniture and a private hot tub. Run around on the lawn with the kids, play football or hide-and-seek, look for bugs in the wooded area. You'll also have access to wider grounds with a pond and paddock, so there's plenty of exploring to be done. Luntley Court is a wonderful place to stay - bring on those big happy holidays! Book today!
