Social spaces

Enter this enchanting big house through a wide oak floored hallway. The stylish kitchen is fully equipped for whipping up culinary delights with space for the inevitable gathering of kitchen helpers to mingle.  The dining room adjoins the kitchen and can seat 24 guests comfortably around a large solid wood table. From there, patio doors lead out to the courtyard and the large hot tub, which is ideal for after dinner star gazing and day time relaxing.

The main drawing room with log burner and big squishy leather sofas, sitting room with wide screen TV and den (leading out to a patio) are all interconnected, providing a great space for large scale entertaining or they can be separated for cosier gatherings.

Bedrooms

Upstairs your group can choose between six bedrooms, some with zip and link beds to provide flexible sleeping arrangements, and four shower/bathrooms, of which two are en-suite. All the bedrooms have plenty of light and have lovely views over the grounds. They are furnished with extremely comfortable beds and period furniture, many rooms retain their original fireplaces (not in use).

On the ground floor there is one bedroom with en suite shower room for easy access accommodation. (see the house floor plan here)

Upstairs there are three bedrooms and two shower/bathrooms (one en suite). The cottage provides excellent, extra sleeping capacity. In general, all the action happens in the main house, which is large enough and well equipped for all 24 guests.

Fun Spaces

The coach house provides a spacious area for indoor games with table tennis, table football and a quarter size snooker table. It also makes an ideal party venue, as the games equipment can be easily moved to create plenty of space for dancing.

Pool, lakes, hot tub & 17 acres

The heated pool (May – Sept) and loungers are set within the walled garden, a delightful spot for your group to enjoy the summer sunshine. There is a large lawn here for group games, as well as pool side fun. Outside the house, in the courtyard, the hot tub is a very social space.

In front of the house is a natural pond with its own island gazebo (licensed for weddings) and to the west of the property is woodland, great for hide and seek. You will also find a two acre spring fed lake (try your hand at some fishing!) which borders onto an orchard, from which we make our very own apple juice.  The grounds of this large house are spectacular and lend themselves to a range of country pursuits (archery, fishing, laser clay shooting to name a few) so your group can stay and play without ever having to leave site! A truly memorable big house experience.

The large outdoor heated pool is in the sheltered, walled garden and has sun loungers and sun umbrellas

The lakeside gazebo is licensed for weddings at Widcombe Grange through The Big House Company
