Changes are afoot at Pitmaston House; from September 2021 this lovely Georgian town house will sleep up to 26 people – there’ll be snooze space for 16 in 8 en suite bedrooms, and room for 10 more in guest beds at an extra charge per person (see Extra Beds).
The ground floor of the house will be really opened up, with the addition of a huge and rather grand drawing room, a games room, snug/cinema room and a new bedroom (Bedroom 8). The kitchen will have a whole new look with a long dining table to one side, extending to seat 26 for the most fabulous feasts. There will also be a very handy utility room with more storage space, an extra fridge and freezer, laundry facilities and room for all your coats and boots. So, if you’re coming to Pitmaston House for a significant celebration you know you’ll have plenty of space for food and fizz!
The new floor plan shows how the layout will be from September; as you come in the front door to the wide entrance hall the drawing room will be more or less straight ahead. This is a big, statement room with double height ceilings, plenty of comfy seating, an enormous open fireplace, and above it, a huge TV. It’s a room to gather together to relax and chat, to play games, somewhere to put your feet up, or just to curl up by the fire with a good book. To get through to the games room you'll need to find the hidden doorway in this room; we won’t spoil the surprise for you, you can have fun finding it.
The drawing room also has a mezzanine floor, which was designed with kids of all ages in mind; it’s a pretty cool place to hang out, slouching around on big bean bags. Next to the drawing room will be the games room with a pool table, table football, air hockey and a TV; there’s even a mini kitchen area with a fridge freezer, oven, hob and dishwasher, so you can rustle up a pizza without having to go to and fro from the kitchen. Right opposite the games room is Bedroom 8, which sleeps 2 in zip and link beds (room for 2 more in Z beds at an extra charge per person) and has an en suite shower room.
To the left of the main hall is the utility room, leading through to the kitchen/dining room. Off this there will be a snug/cinema room overlooking the garden. These alterations can be done quietly without affecting guests who are staying in the house whilst the works are in progress. The end result will be supersize group accommodation that ticks all the right boxes for fantastic family holidays and celebrations, and for self catering corporate hospitality or team building breaks.
