The Corn Crib - Accommodation
The Corn Crib is a supersized holiday house that sleeps 20+10 guests and has something for everyone; the property is self-contained and provides amazing accommodation for large family groups, peaceful celebrations, sophisticated hen weekends and corporate away days.
The wow factor kicks in as soon as you see The Corn Crib, and once you get inside, it gets better and better. Step into the enormous open plan living space where big chunky rafters soar to the roof and exposed brickwork adds to the modern rustic feel. Full height doors let the light pour in, there are games areas with a pool table, table tennis and table football – this is a room with a big happy vibe for all ages. The feel is eclectic with a mix of sumptuous sofas and chairs, mid-century style furnishings and vintage accessories. It works so well and creates a fantastic space where you can gather together to chat, relax, play games, or watch a movie.
At one end of the living space are Bedrooms 1 and 2, off to the left; right opposite is Bedroom 3. All the Bedrooms at The Corn Crib have zip and link beds so you can have them arranged how you wish - see Floor Plans/Rooms for more details; 8 of the bedrooms have ensuite shower rooms, 1 has an ensuite wet room and The Dorm (Bedroom 10) has 2 ensuites - a bathroom and a shower room.
A small flight of stairs takes you down to the open plan kitchen/dining room; this is a huge space with a distinctly Scandi edge with wooden floors and walls, and open shelving to one side of the kitchen. Catering for your large group shouldn’t be a problem here, not just because there’s plenty of room but also because the kitchen is so well equipped. In the middle there’s a large island with stools around so it’s a very sociable room where you can gather for pre-dinner drinks and whoever’s doing the cooking isn’t left out.
The long dining table is centre stage in this room so it’s easy to imagine all those happy dinner times and celebration feasts, the chatter and the laughter, the corks popping and glasses chinking. To one side an entire wall of glass gives the room a wonderful light and airy ambience, with an outlook of the courtyard and the spa hall.
Off the kitchen/dining room are Bedrooms 4-7; note that Bedrooms 4 and 5 can accommodate an extra guest bed at an additional charge. Next to Bedroom 4 stairs rise to the first floor where you’ll find Bedrooms 8 to the left and Bedroom 9 to the right. Both of these bedrooms have room for an extra guest bed.
Back in the living space, stairs lead up to a wide mezzanine with stunning views across the countryside and right at the end, double doors opening onto a roof terrace – an absolutely amazing spot to gather for drinks at sunset. To the right is The Dorm (Bedroom 10), which sleeps 2, though as it has room for 8 extra guest beds at an additional charge, it can sleep a maximum of 10 guests* - this is a terrific room for kids (even grown-up ones!)
Step outside of the kitchen/dining room into the courtyard; just the other side, so only a few steps from the house is an amazing spa hall with a 10m x 5m pool, a hot tub and sauna. The entire end wall is glass so the light pours in adding to that relaxed holiday vibe.
From the courtyard steps take you up to the patio where there’s a barbecue island and seating. The Corn Crib is a big happy place, made for fun-filled holidays, unwinding and reconnecting. Book now for an amazing group holiday!
*Note that if you book The Dorm you can only book extra beds in two of the other bedrooms (4,5,8 or 9) to make a total of 10 extra guests, and a maximum group size at The Corn Crib of 30 people.
The Corn Crib is within the private 20 acre Hesdin Estate; there are other properties on the estate undergoing renovation for letting with Sleeps12 so it is likely that you will hear building works being undertaken during your stay. This will be kept to a minimum and there will be no works at weekends unless absolutely necessary. During the week the builders finish at 5pm Mon-Thurs and at 4pm on Fri.
